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:

  • Putting the needs of your patient first
  • Respecting your colleagues

These simple principles directly impact on how you interact with patients and their carers, observe patient safety policies (like hand hygiene), 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, looking out for and supporting your peers who need help and speaking out about bullying or harassment if you encounter it.

The links below represent a collection of documents relevant to expected professional behavior:
