Over the past 18 months, a partnership of healthcare organisations led by the General Medical Council (GMC), held a series of events to explore some of the challenges facing the medical profession today. This programme is called Medical professionalism matters.

Six events were held across the UK – from Glasgow and Belfast, to Newcastle, Cardiff, Birmingham and Bristol – with each one focusing on an issue that presents particular challenges for the modern doctor. Those issues were: ethics, resilience, collaboration, compassion, scholarship and patient safety.

Almost 600 doctors and other healthcare staff and patient representatives attended the events, which included presentations, panel debates and facilitated table discussions. Hundreds more joined the discussion online, taking part through videos, blogs and social media exchanges.

The Medical professionalism matters report gives an insight into the result of the discussions.
