  • Scottish Academy report on Serious Failings of care in Scotland

    The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in Scotland has today (10 July 2015) published a series of major recommendations aimed at addressing systemic failings in NHS care in Scotland, evidenced in recent reports on hospital deficiencies,  which it believes have been predominantly caused by the failure of clinical staff and NHS management to work together to deliver improved healthcare.

UKDEC proposes a model of decision-making which respects any known wishes or beliefs of the child but which, in the absence of these, provides a framework for making decisions about organ donation.

We said when our report “Seven Day Consultant Present Care” was published in 2012 that it was not acceptable that patient outcomes should depend on when they are admitted to hospital and this variation is insupportable.
