Service Design and Development

The latest version of Medical Care, a web-based planning resource for medical specialties was launched on 26 July 2017. The website helps those involved in the planning and provision of services get a clearer picture of the specialty services that need to be in place to provide great patient care. 

The updated version includes further information on workforce and medical specialty specific job planning.

The respiratory speciality information is produced by RCP in partnership with BTS and has two chapters: 

  • Designing services – this includes a short description of the specialty and the patient population, and a summary of the workforce needs to support service provision.
  • Developing physicians – includes information on the education, training and continuing professional development required for that specialty.
