GMC overhaul is required, warns ex-president

Former GMC council president Sir Donald Irvine has called for an overhaul of the GMC council.

Following the regulation recommendations by the CMO for England last month, Sir Donald made his suggestion in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

He wrote: 'The current council needs to be disbanded and its successor reformed with members, medical and lay, who can give it a convincing fresh start.'

Consultation on the CMO's recommendations will be completed in November.
