Working with doctors Working for patients

Guidance

This page provides information on the GMC guidance that medical practitioners tribunals use to help them reach their decisions about cases that are referred for a hearing. It also includes documents used by other parties involved with hearings.

Several of the documents listed below are published mainly for the benefit of lawyers, medical defence organisations and others who are familiar with our processes.

 

Sanctions guidance

The Sanctions guidance is key to maintaining a link between the GMC's Good medical practice and fitness to practise. The annex to the document includes links to additional documents and guidance available to medical practitioners tribunals.

This guidance is available on the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service website.
