The Practice of Medicine Today examines the tiers of medical regulation. The first half of the chapter focuses on professional regulation undertaken by statutory regulators such as the General Medical Council (GMC), which sets standards for students and doctors, sets out guidance on how to meet them, operates a system of revalidation by which all licensed doctors must regularly demonstrate that they are fit to practise and disciplines doctors who fail to meet those standards. The second part examines the NHS and considers the role of a range of governance bodies from Monitor to the Care Quality Commission.
