MKNHS Guidance Handbook

This handbook has been prepared for two reasons:

  • to provide information and guidance on MKNHS policies and procedures to officers, other committee members, and members of the Society
  • to provide a policy framework for the management of MKNHS

The handbook includes three important Society policy statements: Equality and Diversity; Safeguarding; and Privacy Policy. There are also 19 appendices covering such matters as the responsibilities of society officers and others undertaking specific tasks, safety risk assessments, guidance notes, and procedures. Individual policies and appendices can be copied and printed off by members.

The Society is an organisation which needs to respond to changing circumstances. Therefore, it will be necessary for the committee to review and update the handbook on a three-year basis, with updates of specific policies and responsibilities as and when required.
