Danny Mortimer: New contract will tackle issues raised in GMC training survey

Daniel Mortimer

Responding to the GMC's National Training Survey Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers, said:

“The health and safety of staff and thereby their patients is paramount. Many of the issues highlighted in this report will be mitigated by the new 2016 contract of employment for doctors in training.

“The new contract sets out improved requirements on working hours and adequate rest periods, while the new independent Guardian of safe working hours will play a vital role in enforcing them. 

“At the same time employers and Health Education England continue to make improvements to the quality of training on offer.”
