Notes to editors

1. The Medical Schools Council is the representative body for UK medical schools. The council is made of the heads of UK medical schools and meets in order to shape the future of medical education and research in the UK.

2. All guidance offered is general. UK universities (in which medical schools are embedded) are autonomous bodies and each should act according to the best information locally and to local pressures. Each has its own responsibility to its students, staff, and to the public and should maintain close contact with students and provide regular updates.
