Refusal to grant a licence to practise appeals

This section is to help doctors who wish to appeal our decision to refuse them a licence to practise due to lack of evidence of the necessary knowledge of English to practise safely in the UK.

Appeals are handled by the GMC Appeals team. The Appeals team is independent of the registration process and aims to provide an impartial and fair service.
