The General Medical Council (GMC) is asking healthcare professionals to take part in their consultation on their updated Good medical practice guide.

The guide has recently been updated, and has an even greater focus on professional behaviours between colleagues and interactions with patients that are compassionate, civil, inclusive and fair. 

The Good medical practice guide provides guidance on the standards of care and professional behaviour that the GMC expects from all doctors and other medical professionals, including ones they’ll regulate in the future.

The GMC want Good medical practice to be shaped by real experiences, and to be inclusive of all those who use it and are affected by it. Your perspectives will help make sure that the guidance supports high quality, fair and compassionate healthcare for all, for years to come.

Take the survey.

The consultation is open from 27 April until 20 July 2022 and anyone can take part.
