Commenting on the publication of the report of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust public enquiry (chaired by Robert Francis QC), Professor Peter Kopelman, Principal of St George’s, University of London said:

“St George’s, University of London prides itself on the quality of education and the primacy of the clinical experience it offers its students in health disciplines including medicine.


“The University works closely with its NHS partners, which include trusts, primary care services and health professional bodies, and we shall be actively addressing every relevant recommendation in the report. The development of professionalism, an ability to work with colleagues from a range of backgrounds and the capacity to communicate effectively with patients, their families and colleagues play a crucially important role in all of our training programmes. Our graduates are well respected for these strengths with employers within the NHS and internationally.”
