The General Medical Council has indicated that it does not anticipate the Referendum campaign result will impact on doctors who are already registered. However, it has also said that it will make patient safety its priority in discussions about how the UK’s withdrawal from the EU will impact on the profession.

In a statement issued on Friday, the GMC said that the withdrawal from the EU will have implications for the way that the GM regulates doctors, “but we understand that the vote to leave the EU will have no impact on the registration status of any doctor already on the register.

“'We will now explore how doctors from the EU will be granted access to the UK medical register and how any concerns about those doctors will be shared between us and other countries. We will also seek to understand the implications for UK doctors wishing to work in the EU once the UK is no longer a member state.

“Much will depend on whether the principle of free movement is maintained within the treaty of withdrawal.”

It said it will now begin to discuss the matter with the four governments across the UK. “Our chief priority in these conversations will be to make sure we can provide robust protection to UK patients.”
