Last updated 4 years ago

Within our first 30 days, we will hold an urgent review, working with the British Medical Association and Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to solve the problem.

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to review the ‘taper problem‘ within 30 days of being elected, working with the two key organisations representing NHS doctors.
  • Within the timescale the British Medical Association confirmed the review was underway, but we don’t have a clear indication yet that the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AMRC) was consulted as part of this review.
  • While we await confirmation from the AMRC we’re marking this as ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
