Memorandum of understanding between the General Medical Council and the Pathology Delivery Board

The document sets out the roles and responsibilities of the General Medical Council and the Pathology Delivery Board on sharing information.

Detail

This document sets out our approach to sharing information where there are concerns that a member of the Home Secretary’s Register of Forensic Pathologists (the ‘Home Secretary’s Register’) may pose a risk to public safety or public confidence in the criminal justice system or medical profession. It is a prerequisite of membership of the Home Secretary’s Register that a forensic pathologist must be registered with the GMC and licensed to practise.
