Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Human Trafficking involves an act of recruiting, transporting or transferring, harbouring, receiving, transferring or exchanging control over a person through a use of force, coercion, abuse of vulnerability, fraud or deception or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them.
HealthTrust Europe is committed to a work environment that is free from human trafficking, forced labour and unlawful child labour. HealthTrust Europe is committed to promoting ethical and lawful employment and supply chain practices. These practices are also required to be followed by our suppliers, subcontractors or business partners worldwide.
HealthTrust Europe will not tolerate slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour in the manufacture of products we use or sell and will not accept products or services from Suppliers who employ or utilise slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour in any manner.
In order to detail our responsibilities, HealthTrust Europe has put in place a Human Trafficking Policy which sets out the obligations on staff, management and our supply chains to ensure that slavery and human trafficking does not occur. In addition HealthTrust Europe is developing our Supplier Code of Conduct to provide detail to Suppliers regarding our expectations in this context; and a training programme for staff to enable identification and reporting of modern slavery in all its forms.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Ensuring and maintaining the security and safety of personal and/or special category data belonging to the individuals with whom we deal with is paramount to our company ethos. HealthTrust Europe adheres to the GDPR and its associated principles in all processes and functions.
Our parent organisation HCA Healthcare UK has appointed a Data Privacy Officer who oversees the implementation of the GDPR within our corporate group; and our programme is well underway to ensure that we are ready for the new legislation when it takes effect.
