Our guidance says that all doctors have a duty to act when they believe patients’ safety is at risk, or that patients’ care or dignity is being compromised.
If you are faced with one of these situations, it’s essential that you know what action to take and feel confident in doing so.
This interactive tool guides you through the decision making process, from incidents you can tackle yourself to challenging situations where you may need to involve a regulator or other external body.
Answer the questions and follow the prompts. You will find case studies at key steps along the pathway to help you think about what to do next and what the outcome might be. We've developed case studies with input from doctors who understand the challenges that you can face when raising concerns about patient safety.
