Who is my regulator?


As a doctor registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) you will have a duty to maintain and build upon your standard of care by demonstrating:


  • Good behaviour;
  • Ethical values;
  • Knowledge; and
  • Skill.

How does the GMC monitor my practice?


If you are a doctor registered with the GMC you are regulated under The Medical Act (1983) and the Fitness to Practice Rules (2004) which the GMC enforces, meaning you may be subject to concerns over your fitness to practice.


This sort of concern can lead to a hearing in front of:


  • A committee;
  • A panel; or
  • A tribunal.


During this time, you are entitled to legal representation, to help you prepare for the hearing and represent you and your individual right to practice.


How can Duncan Lewis help me as a Doctor if the GMC brings proceedings against me?


Should the decision made by the GMC be to disqualify your registration, you are able to appeal and Duncan Lewis Regulatory Fitness to Practice solicitors have substantial experience preparing and presenting appeals, making sure you have tailored representation.


Duncan Lewis Regulatory Fitness to Practice solicitors are experts in representing doctors in fitness to practice cases which have been brought about by the GMC. We work to give you peace of mind and aim to get you the best possible result.


If you are a doctor with a professional regulatory query, or you wish to appeal the decision of a tribunal to take you off the GMC register, or a decision to withdraw your licence to practice, then contact Duncan Lewis Regulatory Fitness to Practice solicitors on 0333 772 0409.
