We would describe minor conditions as those that last a very short time and have no lasting effect on your health or ability to study. For example, a common cold or flu, minor surgery for an injury, or an illness that meant you needed to visit a doctor/GP once.
The General Medical Council
We help to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving and exceeding those standards, and take action when they are not met.
