Employer Liaison Service
Our Employer Liaison Service works with responsible officers, medical directors and medical managers to protect patients and support doctors to meet our standards.
The service helps us bridge the gap between national and local regulation.
We support medical leaders in all sectors, including the NHS and independent providers.
In particular, we:
- work with responsible officers to make sure concerns about doctors are addressed in the right place and at the right time. This includes supporting the management of concerns at a local level. Many issues can be addressed where they arise rather than through referral to us
- help responsible officers apply our thresholds, including advice to support quality referrals that are fair, timely and underpin effective investigation
- support the continuous development of local clinical governance systems that are a part of the responsible officer function, including making revalidation recommendations
- learn about the environments in which doctors practice. This helps us support our aim to be ready to speak and act in the interests of patient safety and high quality care.
