Supporting doctors with their practice
We support doctors to deliver the highest standard of care to patients. We do this by providing guidance and advice on professional standards and medical ethics. We also work with doctors and organisations at a local level to support quality improvement and patient safety through our Outreach teams.
In 2021 we'll continue to work with partners across the UK health services to improve working environments and cultures, making them supportive, inclusive and fair for medical professionals. And we’ll continue do everything we can to help the UK’s health services respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and deliver patient care. Find out more about our work to support doctors and patients during this difficult time.
We recently published updated Decision making and consent guidance, and in the coming years we’ll review more of our ethical guidance to make sure it reflects the diverse needs of patients.
