It has been noticed that patient safety is something that one in 20 junior doctors is concerned about and especially at places where they get trained.
There was a poll conducted by the General Medical Council or the GMC which states that wards like the emergency and accident wards are the places where these doctors raised concerns about patient safety as there is a lot of pressure on doctors at these places.
It was felt by about 8,000 junior doctors that clinical problems that they are made to handle are beyond their competence or experience.
Handover arrangements were another aspect that these doctors felt was a matter of concern. These arrangements ensure that a patient is being looked after before and after night duty.
The GMC said that they cannot take the concerns of these medics as it is too early to pay attention to what these medics think. More details are needed for carrying out the investigation further.
GMC chief executive Niall Dickson said, "Trainee doctors are delivering much of the frontline care to NHS patients. Making sure they are properly supported and supervised is vital for patient safety as well as for effective training."
