Testing European doctors’ language powers

Extract from GMC

“The UK Government has announced plans to give the GMC new powers to check the English language skills of doctors from Europe when we have concerns about their ability to communicate effectively.

We are already able to check the language skills of doctors who qualified outside Europe, and to refuse to grant their registration if they cannot speak English to a safe standard. But UK law prevents us from checking doctors who qualified within the European Union.”

The GMC also produces some useful standards and ethics guidance for doctors
