The College responded to the General Medical Council consultation on the revised edition of the 2006 core GMC guidance Good Medical Practice. The College supports the new emphasis on effective handovers and continuity of care. We are also supportive of the reorganisation of the guidance into four headings, in line with the framework for appraisal and assessment, which we hope will help doctors prepare for revalidation and reduce confusion over what is the definitive document against which to judge fitness to practise. However, we think that greater degree of content from GMC supplementary guidance such as guidance on consent, confidentiality and conflicts of interest should be included in the core document to minimise the degree to which doctors have to seek out additional guidance.
