The General Medical Council (GMC) with our support is consulting on the actions that could be taken against doctors who don’t meet professional standards.
The GMC needs your opinions on questions such as these:
- Which types of complaints should result in the most serious actions?
- Should the GMC make doctors who have harmed patients apologise?
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Please also let us know if you have any individual needs – blue badge parking, communication support.
What is a role of the General Medical Council
The General Medical Council helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. It supports them in achieving and exceeding those standards, and takes action when they are not met. One of its key roles is to investigate concerns about doctors and, if needed, take action to protect patients. The GMC wants to make sure that its actions continue to meet your expectations.
