The formal process will usually involve a formal meeting with an educational supervisor at medical school who will raise their concerns. It could also involve a referral being made to a panel, hearing, committee or similar.
After the formal process has finished, a decision will be taken about what action to take and confirmed in writing.

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.
