The increasing demand for services, including diagnosis within 28 days, is highlighted in the latest blog from Janet Monkman CEO at the Academy for Healthcare Science.
As patient expectations and access to services increase, Janet is keen to see professional regulation discussed amongst staff, employers and articulated clearly for patients, to ensure service users and the public feel fully assured about the people providing them with healthcare services.
