Working with doctors Working for patients
Please select which guidance you need using the table below. If you are looking for information on a specific issue and do not know which guidance title you need, you can also view our A-Z or search the guidance.
You can also download the publication, What to expect from your doctor: a guide for patients (2013) which we have developed to help patients understand the standards expected of all doctors. Please note that this is not guidance for doctors.
And guidance that may be more relevant to doctors working in certain specialties, or about specific situations some doctors may face during the course of their career.
We expect doctors to be familiar with the range of guidance because failure to follow any of it will put their registration at risk.
