The state of medical education and practice in the UK: 2017 report

"Our seventh annual report on the state of medical education and practice in the UK sets out an overview of issues that feature prominently in healthcare.

It examines the GMC data relating to the changing medical register and explores  the patterns of complaints about different groups of doctors.

In our 2016 report we highlighted the ‘state of unease’ gripping the UK’s medical profession. This was the first time we had expressed such a serious concern about the pressure on doctors and the effect this was having on their morale and wellbeing.

From what doctors tell us – through their feedback, behaviour and choices – it is clear that this ‘unease’ has continued through 2017." Read the report in full here
