The regulator's annual retention fee for doctors holding a registration has been frozen at £390 for 2013/14. The fee for doctors without a registration has also been frozen and will remain at £140.

Newly qualified doctors will also see their registration fee fall from £195 to £185 next year. For doctors in training, the provisional registration fee has fallen from £95 to £90.

GMC chief executive Niall Dickson said: ‘We recognise that these are challenging times, especially for doctors at the start of their careers. We also have a responsibility to provide value for money and, as far as we can, to control our costs.

‘Last year for the first time in the history of the GMC we cut the annual fee paid by all doctors, and this year we have been able to freeze the fee at that level and target further cuts for doctors who are new to practice.’
