GMC produces licensing resource pack for practices

An essential information pack for organisations that employ doctors produced by the GMC is available for download by practices.

The ‘licensing resource pack' aims to help employers prepare for the introduction of the licence to practise, which is the first step towards revalidation, the biggest change to medical regulation in 150 years.

From 16 November all doctors who wish to practise medicine in the UK will not only have to be registered with the GMC, they will also have to hold a licence to practise.

The pack explains how organisations can go online to check the GMC status of their doctors and provides information about important changes the GMC is making to the certificates it issues to doctors.

The pack can be downloaded from the GMC website or requested by emailing licensingpack@gmc-uk.org.

The pack has been sent to all UK primary care organisations but not to practices.
