Have your say on proposed new guidance on reporting matters to the GDC
By DTA | 6th April 2023 | News
The GDC recently launched a consultation to seek views on their proposed Guidance on reporting matters to the GDC The proposals do not introduce new requirements for dental professionals, but aim to make it easier for them to find all relevant guidance and better equip them to understand and meet their legal and regulatory obligations.
Dental professionals need to report to the GDC any concerns they may have about their, or another dental professional's health, conduct, or performance that may risk patient safety or public confidence in the dental profession. They must also report any criminal or regulatory proceedings they may be subject to.
The GDC want your views to inform the guidance they set, so they would like to encourage all stakeholders to review and respond to the GDC consultation by 8 June.
