The General Medical Council (GMC) commissioned this research into doctors’ perceptions of the GMC. Results showed that the majority of doctors were confident in way the GMC regulates doctors (79%) and the way the GMC protects the health and safety of the public (85%). Levels of confidence in the GMC varied by ethnicity and place of qualification. BME doctors had greater confidence in the GMC than White doctors and non-UK qualified doctors had greater confidence than UK qualified doctors.
