Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt tasked the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to develop the new "name above the bed" policy that will see every hospital patient assigned a named doctor who is responsible for their care.
Patients tell us that, too often, their care isn't joined up.
That's why every patient should have a single responsible clinician whose job it is to help them with anything that goes wrong and make sure they get the care they need.
This guidance will make that a reality - it has been developed by clinicians, for clinicians, and is a huge step forward for patient safety.
