GMC work to address themes arising from public inquiries and reviews

This page provides information on the GMC's work to address the recommendations arising from various inquiries and reviews, starting with the 2012 Francis Report into the failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Hospital

December 2016 update

Today we have published an update on the GMC's work to address recommendations of inquiries and reviews, which provides an overview about how we have addressed overarching themes from recently published inquiries and reviews, including Francis.

In particular, it highlights the impact our work to promote a more collaborative and patient-focused culture has had on the shifting landscape of healthcare regulation.

The themes identified by these inquiries and reviews will remain part of the ways in which we strive to be a better regulator, informing the activities we undertake.
