In February 2012 the GMC issued guidance on Raising and acting on concerns about patient safety which makes clear that doctors have a duty to act when they believe patient safety is at risk, or when a patient’s care or dignity is being compromised. The guidance explains when doctors need to raise concerns and advises on the help and support available to them, including how to tackle any barriers that they may face.
One of our trainee representatives has worked with us to develop a presentation about raising concerns at work/whistleblowing. The presentation was well received at both the STFS Advisory & Development Committee and STFS Board and is available for download on the right hand side of this page.
KSS Deanery and London Deanery have both produced guidance on raising concerns at work/whistleblowing. These documents can be found at http://www.stfs.org.uk/student/whistleblowing.
