Why have we developed this?

We collect a wealth of data about the medical profession and the organisations where doctors practise and train, and we are committed to sharing that information with others to improve patient care and aid workforce planning.

We already make our information and insights widely available through tools and publications such as the State of Medical Education and Practice Report (SoMEP) Reference Tables, the SoMEP report and National Training Survey Reports.

GMC Data Explorer goes one step further to make our key data easily accessible and current.

Tell us what you think

This is just the start and we will be incorporating new sections of data in the future. By the end of 2017 we plan to release more sections on medical education and fitness to practise. Any feedback you have will help us make improvements in the future. Let us know via insightandresearch@gmc-uk.org.
