General Medical Council (UK)

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The General Medical Council (or GMC) is the United Kingdom's professional body for registering, licensing and investigating UK doctors.[1] All UK doctors must be on the GMC's medical register to legally practice medicine in the UK, this includes pediatricians, general practitioners and psychiatrists (but not psychologists). The vast majority of UK doctors are employed by the NHS.
