- If you are aware that a colleague or other healthcare professional has breached personal or sexual boundaries with a patient or carer you should speak to the colleague, if possible, and alert them to the dangers of this unprofessional behaviour.
- If you are asked for advice by a colleague who feels attracted to a patient or carer, but has not acted inappropriately you are not required to inform anyone. You should remind your colleague that they must not abuse their professional position.
- If you consider a colleague is putting patients at risk you should consult the relevant professional, representative or regulatory body. See section on Raising concerns.
