Making sure doctors are treated fairly

It’s well established that some groups of doctors are referred to us for fitness to practise concerns more or less than others. This year, we have commissioned a major, independent research programme to help us understand what drives this disparity. This will be led by Roger Kline and Dr Doyin Atewologun.

It will help you understand the research into fitness to practise referrals and why we commissioned it.
Why is this important?
We hope this research will give practical recommendations that we and others can act on to help change current referral trends.
