AUKUH response to the MMC Inquiry
23 November 2007
The Association of UK University Hospitals (AUKUH) have responded to the MMC Inquiry. AUKUH welcomes the Tooke Report and commended the Panel on its high quality – particularly given the short timescale within which it was produced.
AUKUH believe that governance issues make the return of student locums unlikely, however, closer working with Medical Schools so that F1 doctors arrive with accredited ‘competency passports’ could speed induction and allow more rapid acquisition of responsibility.
AUKUH also believe that trainees need incentives to strive for excellence.
