GMC Response to Independent Neurology Inquiry Report


The Independent Neurology Inquiry was established to review the circumstances that led to the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust’s recall of neurology patients following concerns about the clinical practice of former doctor, Michael Watt. The Inquiry published their report earlier this year and our response sets out how we are addressing recommendations for the GMC, highlighting the steps we will take in three key areas.

  • Raising concerns. 
  • Revalidation and local clinical governance.
  • Sharing information and accountability in our fitness to practise processes.
