Working with doctors Working for patients

Gateways guidance: Acknowledgements

The project team for the first version of this guidance thanks all the following people who contributed to its development. We also thank the many disabled students and doctors we interviewed.

We thank the medical schools, postgraduate deaneries and trusts who completed our online survey at that time and sent us examples of their policies and practices. We thank all those who participated in the consultative conference on 7 December 2007 or who otherwise submitted suggestions and comments on earlier drafts.

We also thank all those who contributed to the health and disability review of medical education and training in 2012/13. They helped us to develop resources for disabled students and doctors in training.
