Physicians have a responsibility to uphold patient safety and to protect the integrity of the medical profession. As such, if a physician has reasonable grounds to believe that a colleague has engaged in unprofessional or unethical conduct or has provided medical care which falls below the expected standard, the physician has a legal obligation under s. 41 of the Medical Act, 2011 to report their concerns to the College.

For more information, please refer to the College's Standard of Practice - Duty to Report a Colleague.

If you have questions, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 709-726-8546 or by email, registrarsoffice@cpsnl.ca

Your Information

Patient Information (if applicable)

If a patient discloses information which leads a physician to believe that another physician has engaged in conduct deserving of sanction, the physician must provide the patient with information on how to file a complaint with the College.

If the patient does not wish to file a complaint, the physician must report the information to the Registrar, only revealing the identity of the patient if they consent.
