GMC promotes discussion on GoodDoctors

A NEW website for medical professionals has been launched by the GMC to provide a forum for discussion on the "real life challenges" faced in medicine today.

The GoodDoctors website has been developed as part of the Medical professionalism matters programme which the GMC is currently running with partners, including the BMA and RCGP. The website is intended to be the "digital hub" for discussions on topics covered at programme events – such as resilience, compassion and collaboration.

Site users can comment on posts, submit blogs or contact the GMC privately to share thoughts on medical professionalism. The GMC says it wants to hear from doctors, students, trainees, educators and health professionals on the frontline.

All views will feed in to a major report which the GMC plans to launch in late 2016 which will "reflect the current state and future of medical professionalism in the UK".
