Ethics

Mirror Care has established an independent Board of Ethics to review its operating protocols, consents and security.

These are important as to how the company and its individual staff interact with its customers, carees, partners and authorities; the way it handles and stores any personal data it has collected; how staff are trained and their general proficiency; the impact of new legislation and standards and trends, etc.

It will also investigate any problems and issues on a general and a case-by-case basis. It is free to investigate any topic or issue it feels pertinent to the safe and legal running of Mirror Care.

It is independent of the company management (only serviced and supported by Mirror Care staff) and is comprised of academic, professional and lay persons who have an interest in the ethics and law concerning care and the use of remote technology in medical and care settings.

It will present reports on investigations and reviews that it has conducted to the main Mirror Care board.

Any customer or caree is free to email the Board of Ethics to raise, without prejudice, any concerns that it may have concerning the operation of Mirror Care and/or its treatment of customers and carees.

If you have a problem with Mirror Care:

Any customer or caree is free to email the Board of Ethics to raise, without prejudice, any concerns that you may have concerning the operation of Mirror Care and/or its treatment of customers and carees, complaints, any perceived personal data breaches, etc.

If you have an issue please call us on 01908 500800 or, better still, email ethics@mirrorcare.co.uk where your issue will go straight to the Ethics Board. The Director of Compliance, Ethics and Security, who services the Ethics Board, is responsible for reporting any breaches to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office at the earliest opportunity.
