NHS Employers welcomes GMC consultation on a single Medical Licensing Assessment

Danny Mortimer

Responding to the launch today (31 January) by the General Medical Council of a consultation on a single Medical Licensing Assessment, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, said:

“A single Medical Licensing Assessment would help provide employers, and patients, with clearer assurance that all doctors practicing in the UK are working to the same standards of knowledge, skills and preparedness. It would also give common recognition to the important contribution of overseas trained doctors through the assurance systems of the professional regulator.”

Details of the GMC consultation are available on the GMC website.
