The GMC has published its first update on progress made towards its 2026 target to eliminate disproportionate referrals against ethnic minority doctors.

Commenting, Professor Dame Jane Dacre, Medical Protection President, said:

“The GMC’s drive to stamp out disproportionate referrals against ethnic minority doctors and those who qualify outside of the UK is welcome - all doctors have the right to a fair and inclusive environment and the current situation remains unacceptable.

“We recognise there are multiple and complex causes behind this issue, and that changes in the figures over a longer time period will provide a clearer indication of progress, however the target year of 2026 is just around the corner and more action is needed.”
