RCGP to discuss 'feasibility' of reflections in light of Dr Bawa-Garba case


What are 'significant patient safety concerns'? To me, as a patient, ANY concern about safety (including stafing, facilities, bed availability etc)are significant. Significance is in the eye of the beholder. All patients should be told about ANY concerns, and the fact they have been told should be included on the consent form for treatment. They (we) cannot give informed consent otherwise. If some are put off having treatment - so be it. That is the standard of the GMC's own making. Richard Rawlins
