Performance assessments

This is an assessment of the standard of a doctor's professional performance. It is conducted by an independent team of GMC-trained assessors, which is usually made up of two or three doctors, and a lay person. 

Support for doctors
There are a number of resources available that can help you deal with the stress of an investigation, and some of these are totally independent of us.

Performance assessment guides

We have information below for doctors undergoing a performance assessment, as well as those supporting a doctor or being interviewed as part of the process. We also have guides here for people who are assisting with an assessment.
