Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) - 
Following recommendations in the Francis Inquiry report that there is a need for a named accountable clinician for a patient's care whilst in hospital, AoMRC was asked by the Secretary of State to see how this could be taken forward. This guidance was developed following discussion and consultation with medical royal colleges, regulatory bodies and professional bodies.
