Understanding The Francis Report

Summary for Trainees

There's been a lot of talk today about the 'Francis report' (Mid Staffs) and many of us won't really have heard or understood what it's about.


We've put together a (thankfully) short synopsis of what we, as medical trainees, think we all need to know. (It really does only take a minute to read!)



We need to stop thinking of ourselves as 'just' the Junior Doctors - we can have an impact if we want to!


Please spread the word:


  • print this out and put it up in your mess / on the wards
  • forward this email to everyone you know
  • 'like us' on Facebook
  • tweet / RTH the link

Many thanks,

FMLM trainee members
