This section is intended to provide a brief framework for how we expect our doctors to approach their job.
You will see reference below to codes of conduct and other guidelines on professional behaviour, but the overwhelming expectation can be summarised in just a few sentences:
- Put the needs of your patient first
- Respect your colleagues
These simple principles directly impact on how you interact with patients and their carers, observe patient safety policies, respect privacy and confidentiality, ensure timely and accurate documentation and escalate concerns to your seniors. In relation to your colleagues, it means supervising and teaching your juniors, supporting your peers and speaking out about bullying or harassment, if you encounter it.
Below are a collection of documents relevant to expected professional behaviour:
