RPS Support Alerts
The RPS Support team are developing and publishing regular Support Alerts to help support you in your day to day roles. These will cover a wide range of subjects ranging from legal and ethical issues to clinical matters and aim to be informative, supportive and user-friendly. Topics will be identified as part of horizon scanning by the RPS Support team but will also be produced in response to real queries and issues raised by members.
This section also includes information about drug and device recalls, patient safety notices, health professional letters and other important communications concerning patient safety, thus enabling you to ensure that you meet any necessary clinical governance requirements.
To receive these alerts via email please subscribe by visiting My Preferences.
