Impartiality is considered very important by ODEP members to ensure the integrity of the work we do.  The surgeon members of ODEP are not salaried employees and freely volunteer their time. The only payment they receive is reimbursement for travel expenses and subsistence. 

ODEP Hip comprises the following people:

Chair

Chairman Keith Tucker – FRCS

Chairman ODEP & Beyond Compliance,
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon,
Former Member of NJR Steering Committee

Conflicts of interest

Over 15 years ago I was in receipt of royalties from Johnson and Johnson Orthopaedics, all of which I paid into a research charity (Action Arthritis). I am a stockholder in Accentus (Medical).

I receive expenses for travel and accommodation for my ODEP related activities but otherwise I am unpaid.
