GMC asks doctors for views on getting feedback from patients

Doctors are being asked for their views on how they should collect and reflect on feedback from their patients, in a consultation launched by the General Medical Council (GMC).

Feedback from patients, as well as from colleagues, is part of the supporting information doctors need for revalidation, but independent reviews have shown that the processes for collecting this feedback need to be improved. As a result, the regulator is now consulting on proposed changes to its guidance on getting and using feedback.
