The General Medical Council helps to protect patients and improve
medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for
students and doctors. We support them in achieving (and exceeding) those
standards, and take action when they are not met.
We are always on the lookout for talented and passionate people to join
us in protecting patients and improving medical education and practice
across the UK. We believe that every patient should receive a high
standard of care, and we help achieve that by working closely with
doctors, their employers and patients.
At the GMC, you’ll find a career in a stimulating workplace, with
colleagues from diverse backgrounds, and opportunities to develop and
progress – in an organisation that really makes a difference.
Now is an exciting time to join us. We are making major changes to help
us work more effectively in future, and be fast and flexible in
responding to new challenges. As part of this, we are moving more than
100 posts to our head office in Manchester, opening up many
opportunities if you’re based in the northwest.
