Revalidation: 8,500 doctors face removal of license

More than 8,500 doctors face having their licence to practise removed by the GMC for failing to respond to communications regarding revalidation, official figures show.

The regulator said that 23,789 doctors have not responded to communications regarding revalidation or not confirmed their designated body as of 1 August.

Of these, 8,543 doctors face having their licence to practise removed after they were targeted multiple times in the ‘Make Your Connection’ campaign launched by the GMC in April 2012, and did not respond. Of these, 4,179 doctors have registered addresses in the UK.

The GMC said it would be writing to these doctors next month to give them a deadline to respond before action is taken to remove their licence to practise.
