General Medical Council

The GMC is the independent regulator of doctors in the UK. They work with doctors, their employers, their educators, and others to: 

• Set the standards of patient care and professional behaviours doctors need to meet. 

• Make sure doctors get the education and training they need to deliver good, safe patient care. 

• Check who is eligible to work as a doctor in the UK and check they continue to meet the professional standards we set throughout their careers. 

• Give guidance and advice to help doctors understand what’s expected of them. 

• Investigate where there are concerns that patient safety, or the public’s confidence in doctors, may be at risk, and take action if needed.
