Doctors feel that they are increasingly expected to treat patients in an unsafe, unsupportive environment, contributing to a vicious cycle of low morale and poor rates of recruitment and retention. This can and must change. This British Medical Association (BMA) report draws on the experience and expertise of BMA members across all branches of medical practice in the UK. It outlines where change is needed to ensure we safeguard patient care, make the NHS a great place to work and transform services for the better.
This report sets out specific recommendations aimed at government and NHS bodies.
