GDC consultation on proposed amendments to Fitness to Practise procedures

Post date: 03/11/2014 | Time to read article: 1 mins

Dental Protection broadly welcomes the proposals made in this consultation because we feel that a radical change of approach, and culture change, is needed within GDC fitness to practise (FtP) procedures. If in order to make the necessary culture changes, the proposed Section 60 Order is required, then we will support them. However, in order to ensure that these proposals have the intended impact the GDC must be committed to taking full advantage of these new powers.

It is important to note that this consultation is taking place against a background of great concern being voiced across the UK dental profession, regarding the GDC’s performance in connection with (but not limited to) the operation of its Fitness to Practise procedures.
