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 2023 we'll continue our 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 do everything we can to help the UK’s health services respond to ongoing pressure.
We’ll also publish an updated version of our core guidance, Good medical practice in 2023. We’ve been developing this in collaboration with patients, medical professionals and healthcare organisations. We’re reviewing it to make sure it continues to be a shared and achievable picture of what good practice looks like for everyone involved in healthcare.
