Evidence for the National Health Service Litigation Authority (NHSLA) of the level of support and supervision of trainees in England
The GMC and NHSLA are committed to working together to improve patient safety. Following the merger of PMETB with the GMC, the GMC is continuing to set out evidence for the National Health Service Litigation Authority (NHSLA) of the level of supervision of trainees in England, as defined in Domains 1 and 6 of The Trainee Doctor. The GMC’s Quality Improvement Framework (QIF) identifies and collates important and necessary information to ensure that the standards of postgraduate training are being met and to promote improvements in training in the UK. The QIF is informed by a number of evidence sources including the National Training surveys, annual stakeholder reports and issues raised under the Responses to Concerns process. Each acute NHS trust in England, has been awarded a score or level that is indicative of its degree of compliance. This level informs NHSLA's Risk Management Standard 2.4: Supervision of medical staff in training.
