General Medical Council

The General Medical Council (GMC) is a legal governing body in the UK that upholds the rights of patients and their expectations of service delivered to them by the medical community. Its slogan is 'Protecting patients, guiding doctors'.

Formed in 1958, the GMC works on behalf of patients and provides patients who feel they have been seriously mistreated by a doctor with a legal framework and system in which to make a complaint. It does not offer any protection for doctors, but instead guides them on the standard of practice that patients expect in accordance with the Medical Act of 1983.

The GMC concerns itself only with acts of gross misconduct on the part of a doctor, or if evidence exists that a doctor is unfit to practice or has been convicted of a criminal offence. In the event of lesser complaints the GMC advises that the NHS complaints procedure be used.

The GMC is made up of 35 council members. There are 19 elected doctors on the council, together with 14 members of the public who have been appointed by Privy Council, and two academic representatives.
