A public body that controls the official register of medical practitioners in the UK

The General Medical Council (GMC) is a UK public body that maintains the official register of medical practitioners within the United Kingdom. Its chief stated responsibility is ‘to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public’ by controlling entry to the register, and suspending or removing members when it considers this to be necessary. This gives it immense power to enforce medical orthodoxy.

It also sets the standards for medical schools in the UK. Membership of the register confers substantial privileges, and it is a criminal offence to make a false claim of membership. The GMC is supported by fees paid by its members, and it became a registered charity in 2001. The primary legislation devolving powers to the GMC is the Medical Act 1983 [1]

Andrew Wakefield

In 1998, Andrew Wakefield lead authored and was published a paper in The Lancet suggesting that a possible link existed between the MMR vaccine and autism. In 2010, he was struck off the British medical register "for offences relating to dishonesty and failing to act in the best interests of vulnerable child patients." At the end of the GMC's longest case, lasting 217 days, a disciplinary panel found Wakefield guilty of serious professional misconduct on a number of charges relating to a paper published in the Lancet medical journal in February 1998, some of them related to research ethics and others to financial conflicts of interest and failing to put patients first.[2]

In a statement to the ruling, Wakefield, who had in the meantime relocated his medical practice to the Untied States, said: "It seemed to me that they had come to this decision a long time ago, long before the evidence was fairly heard. This is the way the system deals with dissent. You isolate, discredit and provide an example to other doctors and scientists not to get involved in this kind of thing. That is examining questions of vaccine safety."[2]

Covid-19 Doctor Censorship

In June 2020, consultant surgeon Mohammad Iqbal Adil was suspended from the UK medical register for 12 months pending the outcome of an investigation by the General Medical Council, after posting videos on social media stating that covid-19 is a hoax.

A GMC spokesperson said, “The interim orders tribunal imposed an interim suspension on Dr Adil’s registration, following our referral, to protect patients and public confidence. This interim suspension remains in place while we consider concerns about Dr Adil’s fitness to practise.”[3]

In 2021, the GMC was investigating "complaints about three doctors related to (unspecified) coronavirus conspiracy theories ". The GMC "has received complaints about seven doctors in relation to Covid-19 conspiracies since the start of the pandemic on 1 March 2020, it has closed the cases of the four remaining individuals."[4]

After going public with protest against the management of Covid, Dr. Sam White was put under review and given a 18 month media gag order, which was later overturned by the courts.[5]


Being investigated by the GMC is an extensive and traumatic process where their professional work dissected by a wide range of bodies, including the Employer, Regulator,Police, Clinical commissioning group in England, Criminal court, Civil court, the National ombudsman and other bodies who handle complaints.[6]

Between 2005 and [[[2013]], there were 114 doctors that died while under the GMC's investigation procedures. [6]

The GMC commissioned a review that found that 28 of there were suicide or suspected suicide. Its review blamed mental disorders, drug and/or alcohol addictions. marriage breakdown, financial hardship, the involvement of the police and, and only in passing, "the impact of the GMC investigation."[6]
