  • This year the GMC has continued to work towards its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion fairness targets and it has reported progress in most areas. It also published its Regulatory Fairness Review in February 2023, which contained 23 recommendations for the GMC. It reported its progress against these recommendations in September 2023.
  • The GMC published a revised version of Good Medical Practice in August 2023, which comes into effect on 30 January 2024. It has also reviewed and updated several pieces of associated guidance, also now known as more detailed guidance.
  • In preparation for regulation of Physician Associates (PAs) and Anaesthesia Associates (AAs), this year the GMC has worked on areas including what revalidation will look like for both professions, and development of a pre-registration assessment for AAs.
  • This year the GMC has introduced a new digital ID check system to make its process of registration more efficient and more accessible for applicants, who previously were required to attend an in-person check.
  • In fitness to practise, there have been improvements across the main timeliness measures the GMC reports to us. The number of open old cases has also reduced since last year.
