Religious and personal beliefs

A doctor’s faith and values can be a great personal support to them throughout their career. But there may be times when their personal beliefs can impact their practice.

On these occasions, it’s important doctors are supported by their colleagues, employer or medical school. They should work together so they can practise in a way that’s in line with their beliefs, while making sure their patients can access the care they need.

Here, doctors and medical students will find key information that will help them to practise in accordance with their values. There are also resources that medical schools, employers and training organisations can use to support staff and colleagues.
