New GMC Guidance

Dear Colleague,

The GMC’s new guidance for every doctor in the UK to help them protect children from abuse or neglect comes into effect this week.

Protecting children and young people: the responsibilities of all doctors underlines the duty on all doctors to act if they are concerned that a child or young person is at risk.

The guidance is not just for doctors who treat children. Doctors treating adult patients must also consider whether the patient poses a risk to children or young people.

All doctors should have received a copy of the new guidance in the post but an electronic version can be found at along with learning materials, including case studies, and a decision-making flowchart.

We very much hope that you will find this new guidance useful. We would be grateful if you could bring it to the attention of your colleagues.

Best wishes,

Niall Dickson
Chief Executive
General Medical Council
