We are seeking to appoint a medical member for our governing Council. The GMC‘s primary role is protecting the public. You will join us at a very exciting point as our corporate strategy shifts the emphasis of our work from acting when things have gone wrong, to supporting all doctors to deliver the highest standards of care across the UK.
We are responsible for setting the standards for medical students and doctors, for supporting them in achieving and exceeding those standards, and for taking action whenever these are not met. We work hard to promote professionalism and a culture of learning. The Government has recently announced that we will regulate physician associates and anaesthesia associates and we are now preparing for this new chapter in our regulatory work.
Learning and insight isn’t just for our registrants – it applies to us too and underpins everything we do to be a modern more active and proportionate regulator. The Council is comprised of 12 members (6 lay and 6 medical). It sets our strategy, defines our high-level policies and is responsible for making sure that we fulfil our statutory and charitable purposes.
The current vacancy is open to medical applicants currently GMC registered and licenced to practise from anywhere in the UK. Applicants for this role must be able to contribute to setting strategy, exercising oversight and ensuring effective corporate governance. The time commitment for the role will be up to three days a month and remuneration is £18,000 per year.
