NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched a new strategy on patient safety today. The strategy aims to be the ‘golden thread’ running through healthcare and sets out what the NHS will do to continuously improve patient safety.
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's latest report, Talking about dying: How to begin honest conversations about what lies ahead, explores the reasons that doctors and other healthcare professionals find it hard to talk to patients about dying.
