Employers information - when there are concerns about a doctor
Health professionals making a complaint about a doctor
The GMC has published guidance to help health professionals who have concerns about a doctor.
See our section How to make a complaint about a doctor: a guide for doctors, medical directors and clinical governance managers.
Information for employers
To support employers in deciding whether a referral to the GMC is appropriate we have developed guidance to clarify when we can and cannot take action explaining the thresholds for referral
Consultation on information that employers need
We want to make the fitness to practise information in these pages as useful as possible for employers.
We would welcome the views of employers on these pages. If you have any comments or suggestions please e-mail them to FTPEnquiries@gmc-uk.org.
Employing or contracting with doctors with restricted registration
The GMC has published guidance to help employers of doctors with restricted registration. Read Doctors with restricted GMC registration for further advice.
The Employer Liaison Service (ELS) was formed as a result of the sucessful GMC Affiliates pilot carried out in 2008 - 2009, and the 'Closer Working' model developed with Scottish Medical Directors, that ran from 2009 - 2010.
