Guidance for physicians (UK)

Our ethical guidance

Our professional standards for doctors provide a framework for ethical decision making in a wide range of situations. Doctors should continue to follow our guidance as far as is practical in the circumstances. In some extreme cases some doctors may have to depart from established procedures to care for patients.

Our ethical hub has advice on the most common questions we’ve been asked about practising at this challenging time. This includes information about working safely, your health and wellbeing and remote prescribing.
