The podcast, which can be downloaded from the GMC website covers many of the issues doctors face frequently in this difficult area and forms part of the consultation into the GMC’s guidance on confidentiality.

Sir Graeme is joined in the podcast by Jane O’Brien, the GMC’s head of standards and ethics.

They discuss such areas as doctors’ duties to report injuries incurred as the result of a suspected violent attack, patients’ concerns around the security of electronic records and new draft guidance for doctors about responding to criticism from the press.
