MPS surveyed 1,052 newly-qualified doctors to find out about their experiences – one of the biggest issues was quality of care, with 51% having concerns over the quality of care in their workplace.
Over 60% of doctors in their foundation year 1 confided in fellow trainees about their concerns, whilst doctors in their foundation year 2 were more willing to discuss their quality of care concerns, with 67% raising the issue with their clinical managers. It is important that concerns about care quality are raised with senior colleagues. It is your responsibility as a doctor to do so, and patient safety should be your top priority.
