Strong support for proposals to improve patient protection and public confidence in doctors

A major consultation by the General Medical Council (GMC) has found strong support for proposals to deal with the small number of doctors who put patients at significant risk or cause them harm.

The GMC says the overwhelming response to the consultation, and the strong support for the proposals, will help it produce better guidance to protect patients and uphold public confidence in doctors who are providing effective, compassionate and safe care.
