UK doc’s rate hospitals poorly
A new survey from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) found that over a quarter (28%) of consultant physicians surveyed rate their hospital’s ability to deliver continuity of care as poor or very poor. In addition, over a quarter (27%) believe that their hospital is poor or very poor at delivering stable medical teams for patient care and education.
The RCP website doesn’t provide much information regarding the survey, but its shame that we don’t know more about why physicians rate so their hospitals so badly. Is it the organisational culture or the psychological contract? Are the reasons more related to objective or subjective factors?
