GMC responds to BMA sexism report

The GMC has responded to yesterday's BMA report looking at sexism within the organisation.

A GMC spokesperson said:

‘It is completely unacceptable that female doctors and members of staff working at the BMA have suffered sexism, sexual and other forms of harassment, according to this report.'

‘We have asked the BMA to provide us with details of any concerns that we need to be aware of, as the regulator for doctors.'

‘Our guidance, Good medical practice, is very clear that doctors must treat colleagues as well as patients fairly and without discrimination. Any doctor who fails to meet that standard should answer for that behaviour.’
