See paragraphs 1-3
This guidance sets out our expectation that all doctors will, whatever their role, take appropriate action to raise and act on concerns about patient care, dignity and safety.
Good medical practice (2013) says:
This guidance explains how to apply the principles in Good medical practice. It is separated into two parts.
- Part 1: Raising a concern gives advice on raising a concern that patients might be at risk of serious harm, and on the help and support available to you.
- Part 2: Acting on a concern explains your responsibilities when colleagues or others raise concerns with you and how those concerns should be handled. 2
