GPs set for fewer GMC investigations on their clinical practice

The GMC is trialling a new approach to the handling of complaints about doctors’ clinical practice, in a move aimed at cutting out unnecessary investigations.

The regulator said the pilot starting next month will look at clearing up more complaints about clinical practice before they escalate to a formal investigation to help ‘reduce the impact on doctors’.

It comes as Pulse revealed that three–quarters of complaints about GP prescribing over the past four years were thrown out.
