Supporting doctors with their practice
We support doctors with their practice to help them deliver the highest standard of care to patients. In 2020 we'll continue to invest in this area. This will be used to help create safer, supportive and inclusive working environments across the four countries of the UK.
A part of this programme of work we will:
- take forward recommendations made in the independent reports into wellbeing, gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide and why some groups of doctors are referred into our processes more than others
- strengthen our liaison service, so they can continue to provide timely and relevant support to doctors and employers
- help doctors address unprofessional behaviour at work through our Professional behaviours and patient safety programme
- continue to expand our Welcome to UK practice programme, which offers free workshops to doctors new to the UK.
