GPs 'practise in fear' due to GMC, LMCs say


Dear Anonymous | GP Partner | 23 May 2015 8:16am Under ‘The General Medical Council (Voluntary Erasure and Restoration following Voluntary Erasure) Regulations Order of Council 2004’ the legislation requires that all applicants submit a statement that they are unaware of any matters that might lead to an investigation or consideration of their fitness to practise, a similar statement from their current organisation with which they have a contract to provide medical services and a Certificate of Current Professional Status from the GMC before the medical doctor may 'disassociate' membership from the GMC. The Medical Act 1983 allows the regulatory body to investigate any ‘complaint’ up to 5 years from referral.
