What to expect from your Doctor: A guide for patients

The General Medical Council (GMC) has launched a guide which, they say: “explains how you can help to create a partnership with your doctor. Much of it is simply common sense, but following it should help you get the most out of your time with your doctor.”

The guide is based on the standards the GMC sets for Doctors in it’s core guidance Good Medical Practice

  • Doctors must provide good care
  • Doctors must put patient safety first and make sure the care they provide is safe and effective
  • Doctors must treat patients as individuals
  • Doctors must be honest and trustworthy
