This research looks at public and professional attitudes towards dishonest behaviour by health and care professionals. The researchers used qualitative methods to explore responses to a number of scenarios based on real-life cases of professional dishonesty.

The research was commissioned by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), which oversees the work of nine statutory healthcare regulators UK, and conducted by independent research agency Policis.

Broadly, the report finds that healthcare professionals and the public share a common moral framework and a shared understanding of what constitutes aggravating and mitigating factors.
