MDU journal, summer 2021

In this issue of the MDU journal: examining complaints about delays in treatment caused by pandemic disruption - and how to manage them.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused huge disruption to healthcare services, which has inevitably given rise to complaints. But despite this, it's important to recognise the key role doctors play in reassuring and supporting patients whose care has been impacted by pandemic delays and disruption.

In the latest MDU journal, we look at the results from a member survey to discover your key concerns about complaints during COVID, and examine the causes behind them. Plus we offer our top tips for managing the medico-legal issues that can cause complaints in everyday practice.

Also in this issue:

  • The bare bones of orthopaedic claims
  • What you need to know about new GMC guidance on prescribing
  • MDU e-learning: understanding and coping with complaints
