The British Medical Association (BMA) said a proposal to make the wilful neglect of patients a criminal offence alone "will not help change to a culture of care within the NHS".
Dr Paul Flynn, chair of the BMA's consultant committee, said:
Whilst we must ensure that what happened at Mid-Staffordshire Hospital is never allowed to occur again, this proposal alone will not help change to a culture of care within the NHS.
All of Professor Berwick's recommendations must be considered and the NHS must change from the top by increasing staffing levels and resources.
