Patients and the public have the right to expect that the doctors who care for them are up to date and fit to practise and the Government welcomes the report of the Health Select Committee.

The Department will continue to support the work of the General Medical Council and other partners to design and properly test a proportionate and streamlined system for revalidation that is right for the professsion, the health sector, patients and the public.
