We've launched our latest e-learning modules in our series on confidentiality.

As we continue to expand and develop our suite of remote learning modules, we've recently added two more to the list as part of our series on confidentiality:

Confidentiality: responding to police requests for information

Confidentiality: volunteering information to the police

Doctors can come across circumstances when they might have to consider giving information to the police - exactly what you should disclose and when is not always straightforward.

Each short course uses scenarios to look at how to handle typical requests for information from the police, or how to handle information you may consider relevant to them. You'll also learn about the GMC guidance in this area and relevant legislation, before reviewing your knowledge with a short end-of-module quiz.

By working through these two modules, you'll gain an understanding of how to deal with these situations.
