It has been frozen at £290 for the past six years.

Doctors on lower incomes will continue to be offered a 50 per cent discount.

Professor Sir Graeme Catto, GMC president, said: ‘The rise is to ensure that the costs of regulation to doctors and to the health service are maintained at an appropriate level.’
