How to Make a Report or Inquiry
If you become aware of conduct that you believe to be reportable under the Corporate Compliance Program, or if you simply have questions regarding past, present or future conduct, several resources are available to assist you. Ideally, you should discuss your concerns with your supervisor first. If, for whatever reason, you do not feel comfortable talking to your supervisor, you can raise the issue directly with a higher authority within your department or unit or contact the Clinical Enterprise's Compliance Officer, either directly or through the Comply-Line.
The Comply-Line is a toll-free phone number that is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year by an independent contractor. The contractor is professionally trained to take your calls about possible misconduct, or to arrange for you to receive answers to any questions you may have about compliance issues.
It always is better to raise a question before behaving in a manner that may be improper, but it is never too late. So if you are in doubt about an issue or have a concern, just ask. You never will be penalized for raising an issue or voicing a concern when you do so in good faith. Remember it is your right to raise questions and your duty to report suspected misconduct. Likewise it is the Clinical Enterprise's duty to react appropriately to your questions and concerns.
The Corporate Compliance Officer may be reached directly by telephone at 859-323-6044. If you prefer, you may call UK HealthCare's toll-free Comply-Line at 877-898-6072. Any compliance issue may be reported anonymously. The issues you raise will be addressed promptly and professionally.
If you prefer you may submit a report electronically on a Website manned by a third party.
