Create a new regulator of doctors to replace the General Medical Council (GMC)
The General Medical Council (GMC) needs to be replaced by a new, fully accountable body, with transparent, constructive and competent practices and policies. It’s time to establish a different organisation, that can truly, yet efficiently, represent the needs of patients and doctors.
We believe the General Medical Council (GMC) is not fit for purpose. For example, concerns have been expressed about racial bias, and we conclude from accumulating evidence that, for various reasons, it has now forever lost the profession’s trust and respect. The regulation of the medical profession needs to be conducted by a distinctly different system, which is more consistent and practical, so retaining the confidence of the profession and patients.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
