MPS responds to GMC sanctions review

Post date: 18/11/2014

The information within this article was correct at the time of publishing. Last updated 01/04/2019

MPS welcomes the opportunity to comment on these changes to the indicative sanctions guidance. We are concerned that the proposals generally appear to dilute the discretion of Panels to use their experience and judgement on a case by case basis. Some of the proposals represent a creeping extension of the role and function of GMC into areas which are outside the GMC’s self-stated purpose.

They place further impositions on the personal and professional lives of doctors in a way that we believe unnecessary to provide effective oversight of the medical profession. The proposals are also supported by cases studies which are potentially misleading and could undermine the consultation process itself.
