The onset of COVID-19 doesn’t change that, but it is changing - and will continue to change - how we do it in practice.
We know the impact this is having on the profession and the level of challenge and uncertainty involved. Many questions and concerns still remain unanswered, not least on the level of support which may be provided by government. We don’t want to add to that uncertainty and concern, and hope that the information provided here helps you understand what actions we are taking to provide help and clarity where we are able to.
- Minimising the burden of time and attention we impose on registrants.
- Maximising the flexibility of registrants to manage their professional activities in response to the challenges of COVID-19.

Thousands of students will have been due to complete their professional training over the coming months and then to register with GDC. Teaching and assessment are being severely disrupted, but we have been working with education providers to ensure that as many students as possible can still have a smooth transition into practice. We, and they, have prepared a joint statement setting out our shared approach, which has now been published on our website. This statement includes relevant contact details.
