A Guide to General Practice Regulations in the United Kingdom

The Department of Health decides on health policy and oversees the National Health Serice in the UK.

The General Medical Council (GMC) is the self-regulating body for doctors within the UK. It holds a register of all doctors registered to practice within the UK. The GMC provides detailed information online about the current status of all registered doctors. Compensation claims will rest on proof that a failure in the 'Duty to Care' has resulted in injury - these claims are persued throught the civil courts.

The British Medical Association is the chief professional organization for doctors in the UK.

Education

The UK has 32 medical schools spread over a number of administrative regions. Training is usually 5 or 6 years in length though 4 year graduate programmes have become available. The difference in training periods generally applies to theoretical work with set minimums in place for clinical study.

Doctors are ethically responsible for keeping their training up to date through Continuing Professional Development (CPD). All professional associations promote continuing education and organize training. CPD is not mandatory though failure to engage may result in a doctors ability to maintain their 'Duty to Care' coming into question.

Complaints

The GMC will deal with complaints against doctors but its powers only enable it to limit or remove the right to practice: It does not issue fines or grant compensation. The GMC strikes off about 30 doctors each year.

Other complaints should go first to one of the local healthcare authorites.

There is also a health ombudsman (one for each of England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland), independant of the profession.

Storage and Access to Medical Records

The UK has a data protection act. This both protects data and covers the right of an individual to access data held on them - including medical data. Furthermore medical data requested by an individual must be presented in an intelligible manner and within a maximun of 40 days from a formal request being made.

Birmingham is the UK's second largest city with a population of just over 1 million people. If you include the surrounding metropolitan area this figure jumps to almost 3.7 million people.

Rating from 6 Reviews Approachable caring staff, relaxing surroundingsJacqueline, UK, 12 Jan 17

My granddaughter saw Dr Soin after it was impossible to see her normal G.P. urgently. Thanks to him she was rushed to hospital where she was diagnosed with stage 1 diabetes, her blood sugar levels and ketones were exceptionally high, and he saved her from a much more serious situation. Thank you so much. Approachable caring staff, relaxing surroundings.

Rating from 3 Reviews Really lovelySusan, oxfordshire, 12 Jun 14

The location and receptionist were really lovely as was the Dr I saw. I wasn't rushed and although the appointments were running late I was able to spend a good amount of time with him. I'm going back next Friday for a treatment, and feel happy about having it at the Chiltern centre.

This consultation would be with the Doctor and would include diagnosis and suggested treatments.
Cryosurgery From £170
This treatment method involves using Liquid Nitrogen to freeze off the wart or verrucae. The cold temperature kills the cells within the wart or verrucae, as well as constricting the blood supply. This causes the cells to die and naturally fall off.

Rating from 6 Reviews Super serviceVicki, UK, 16 May 16

My 2 year old had a vaccine for chicken pox. The reason we went was purely location, so the fact that it was a great service, is a bonus! Will be back to the second one in 4 weeks. Super service, we had an appointment before the clinic opened and the doctor was really good and gave us all the info we need. Didn't spend more then 10 mins in there.

Rating from 1 Review For me it was good value because it gave me peace of mindMrs, UK, 12 Aug 16

My treatment was a shingles vaccination, I recently had a very bad attack of shingles in April 2015,and am still experiencing some of the symptoms from it.Dreading the thought of having it again,I decided to have private treatment, as the waiting list was another 2- 3 years. For me it was good value because it gave me peace of mind. A friendly welcome, and the clinic looked very clean and proffessional,The doctor was very nice and she explained everyhing very clearly and reassuringly.

The GP Surgery

0203 322 9884 ext: 78176 6-10 St George's Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 4DP
Rating from 7 Reviews I would highly recommend Dr Singh for Cyst RemovalEvelyn, UK, 02 Sep 16

I had a Sebaceous Cyst removed by Mr Masha Singh. It was a recurring cyst and I was originally going to have it removed on the NHS. The Doctor I saw for my consultation didn't sound too confident and didn't explain the procedure but just said it would hurt! I decided to have it done privately and after much research decided on Dr Masha Singh at the GP Surgery in Wimbledon. I was very nervous and he put me at ease straightaway and explained what he proposed to do and then no pressure for me to go ahead.. Apart from a few minor stings with the anaestetic I didn't feel a thing. The wound has healed nicely with a neat scar. I would highly recommend Dr Singh. Very impressed with clinic which is actually a section of a Pharmacy. I chose this clinic because of Dr Masha Singh and the excellent reviews he had.
