Psychiatrists need to maintain demonstrably good standards of practice. They are guided in this by clinical supervision and consultation, by Duties of a Doctor, (General Medical Council; GMC, (1995)) and by guidelines from the Royal College of Psychiatrists (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1984). The ethical standards to which psychiatrists should adhere are made explicit in The Declaration of Madrid (World Psychiatric Association, 1997). Procedures exist to address poor practice and irresponsible conduct.It is important that psychiatrists actively support and participate in these.
