PO1 - Ethics and professionalism
The fundamental principles of ethical behaviour mean you should always act in the wider public interest.
You need to take into account all relevant information and use professional judgement, your personal values and scepticism to evaluate data and make decisions. You should identify right from wrong and escalate anything of concern.
