Responding to Concerns about Medical Practice

NHS England has released updated guidance for responding to concerns about medical practice, stating: "This guide provides generic, practical advice for responsible officers in all designated bodies in England to address a potential concern about a doctor’s practice in a manner consistent with existing literature and previously established principles." www.england.nhs.uk 

"When a concern arises about a doctor’s practice it presents a three-fold opportunity to protect patients, support professional behaviours by the doctor and improve quality in the organisation. These are achieved through reflection and learning by all involved in an open, fair and effective manner. To realise all three is a challenge requiring skill, wisdom and leadership on the part of the responsible officer. The circumstances in which potential concerns come to light commonly increase this challenge. This guide provides generic, practical advice for responsible officers in all designated bodies in England to address a potential concern about a doctor’s practice in a manner consistent with existing literature and previously established principles."
