Ethical framework


Principles to support clinical decision-making

Across Surrey Heartlands clinicians have developed an Ethical Framework to guide and support difficult decision-making. There will always be times when clinicians are faced with difficult decisions and it’s critical to have appropriate and consistent guidance and ethical support in place for such decisions. This framework describes a consistent approach across Surrey Heartlands to support both clinicians, patients and their families and is meant to be used in conjunction with any relevant local framework and/or guidance within individual organisations.
