The RCP has responded to a report by the General Medical Council (GMC) titled Fair to Refer? It explores the disproportionate number of fitness to practise referrals of the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) doctors made to the GMC.
The RCP has welcomed the publication of the Interim NHS People Plan, saying that this is a step in the right direction for the workforce. However, the Treasury must work to support NHS staff starting with addressing the current challenges around pensions.
Following Labour's announcement that it would commit £330m to solving the NHS 'staff retention crisis', RCP president Professor Andrew Goddard said the proposal could turn the tide on the current retention challenges.
