What do we want to achieve?

We want to improve access to the medical profession for people with long term health conditions and disabilities. Our work programme has three core aims.

  • Provide more practical advice to key audiences, building on the overriding principles of the existing guidance and the Equality Act 2010, and expand our guidance on postgraduate education and training.
  • Reach out to medical students directly and provide advice on what support they can expect from education providers. This will be done in collaboration with the Medical Schools Council.
  • Enrich our resources to produce a ‘hub’ with helpful materials for prospective and current students, doctors and educators. This will include examples of good practice, personal stories and other resources.
