GMC shifts tests for non-EU doctors to Manchester

Clinical knowledge testing for non-EU qualified doctors will shift to Manchester from next year, the GMC has announced.

The regulator has announced it will set up a new assessment centre in the city as part of arrangements to merge the functions of the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board with the GMC.

From March 2010, the centre is expected to carry out tests of clinical skills and knowledge of around 1,800 doctors a year who trained outside the EU, but wish to register with the GMC and work in the UK.

The second part of the Professional Linguistics and Assessment Board tests most non-EU doctors must undergo will be held at the Manchester facility.
