Every doctor in the UK will have to show they meet the professional standards set out in updated guidance from the General Medical Council (GMC).
This latest version of Good Medical Practice will underpin the new system of regular checks on doctors (known as revalidation) which came into force at the end of last year.
Doctors will need to demonstrate at their annual appraisal how they are meeting the standards in the updated guidance – the aim is to ensure that every doctor keeps up to date and is fit to practise.
The latest version is also more explicit about doctors’ responsibilities when patients’ basic care needs are not being met, particularly for those patients who are unable to drink, feed or clean themselves.
