« View all News items
The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges has today (28 September 2012) published its Remediation Working Group Report which looks at how medical Royal Colleges and Faculties might provide specialist input into remediation. The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh was delighted to be part of the working group which authored the report.
Vice President of RCSEd, Professor George Youngson who represented the College on the working group said:
"Early detection of the underperforming doctor is at the heart of remediation - not waiting until harm is the by-product of that inability. Colleges will protect patients better by restoring those practitioners to a level of expertise that all concerned would wish.
"The work of RCSEd on patient safety is particularly relevant in that respect. Competence in specialty surgery is underpinned by good judgement, good communication and good decisions. Supporting those in need of remediation to return to expected standards in those areas and others, will be an important role for colleges and hospital employers alike."
