40,000 doctors fail to contact GMC over registration

About 40,000 doctors have so far failed to contact the GMC with their licensing decision.

The GMC says that more than three-quarters of doctors (about 188,000) have now made contact ahead of the 14 August deadline.

Professor Peter Rubin, GMC chairman, told doctors: ‘We know how busy you are but you need to make an important decision. If you haven't yet told us your licensing decision, you need to do so by Friday 14 August.'

Doctors who have already let the GMC know their decision need do nothing more. They will receive a letter from the GMC before licensing is introduced on 16 November.

Doctors can visit www.gmc-uk.org/licensinghelp or call 0161 923 6277 for information.
