As a medical student, member of staff, or as someone involved in teaching you may have concerns.
Many concerns can be managed through senior faculty members such as Line Managers, Community and Hospital Sub-Deans, Senior Academic Tutors, Heads of School, Associate Deans or Professionalism Lead.
However, the raising concerns procedure provides an individual with a route for raising serious concerns related to patient safety or academic or professional malpractice.
Staff and student members of the University may use this raising concerns procedure to raise either a concern about academic or professional malpractice or a concern about patient safety or compromised care.
We recognise that an important role of our clinical curricula is to provide students with the skills and confidence to raise concerns, particularly those which impact on patient safety and care.
