GMC fees frozen for 2014/15

GMC registration fees for next year will remain unchanged from 2013/14 rates, the regulator has confirmed.

GMC: fees frozen

GMS fees from April will remain at £390 for registration with a licence and £140 for registration without a licence. The fee for newly qualified doctors will remain at £185, while the fee for a provisional registration will stay at £90.

The GMC has also agreed to raise the threshold for a discount on fees for lower-earning doctors. Doctors' whose 'total gross annual worldwide income from all sources' is below £32,000 qualify for a 50% reduction in their GMC fees. The threshold has been increased by £1,000 from 2013/14.

GMC chief executive Niall Dickson said the regulator needed to offer value for money.

‘We have achieved this while expanding our work, by liaising directly with employers and doctors, working with patients and developing our data strategy,' he said.

‘We believe that we have managed to strike a balance which is beneficial to all doctors and enables the GMC to continue to be as efficient and effective as we can.’
