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.

Rating from 9 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 40 Reviews I would be very happy to use this service againSarah, UK, 23 Aug 16

I had an ear infection which had caused the side of my face to swell and become very sensitive. The doctor prescribed antibiotics which have reduced both the swelling and the pain. I chose this clinic because it was close to where I live and because I knew I would be able to get an appointment straightaway. The staff/doctor were friendly and helpful. I would be very happy to use this service again.

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.

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.

Central Chiropractic Clinic

024 7610 0664 12 Park Road, Coventry, CV1 2LD
Rating from 4 Reviews Delighted to see a gradual improvement in my situationGladys, UK, 14 Oct 15

For the past two years I have been struggling with chronic pain in my lower back. I have experienced nerve pain in my right groin radiating pain down my leg and into my foot. The pain has varied from day to day which I believe has delayed diagnosis. The pain has changed my life quite dramatically on a physical level. Unable to be comfortable when sitting I now stand at work almost 90% of the time. In desperation over the time I have tried various treatments in the hope I could get some reprieve. The NHS system has been unable to achieve any diagnosis to date for the pain. I have had two lots of steroid injections into my lower back. This has produced even more pain and very unpleasant side effects which I have found harder to cope with. I have over the time tried various treatments, physiotherapy, chiropractic, hydrotherapy, osteopathic, yoga, walking, not walking and the list goes on, prescribed medications several neurological drugs and antidepressant’s. In desperation 5 months ago I finally tried The Central Chiropractic Clinic, Park Road, Coventry. To my surprise discovering they have not only a holistic approach to treating the whole of the body, but also they have many new treatments and up to date approaches all on the same site this I had not come across in any previous clinics. For example IDD Therapy, Shock Therapy, Laser treatment, Dry needling acupuncture, x-rays and ultrasound. Alongside the chiropractic and physiotherapy expertise which I have experienced all of these. I cannot express enough my gratitude to the whole team, Marie, Roy and John. Who have all treated me with the utmost dignity and professionalism at all times. Always supporting me emotionally and treating my sometimes debilitating day to day pain with a welcome smile of understanding. I have needed to call upon them in an emergency as the pain has been unbearable some days. They are positive, compassionate, approachable and very professional always listening to the daily challenges I have faced with the pain. They have encouraged me to stay in contact with the conventional methods that have been offered to me and to keep them updated. As a result of the complexity of my condition and with a combination of the treatments used I feel that they are managing my pain and I see a gradual improvement in my situation. I can now post this information for all to read as I can at least now see some light at the end of the tunnel and that I have regained some control over my life with their help and support. Gladys - October 15 I choose these from recommendation. My first visit went well so I decided to continue and have received an excellent experience throughout. It is worth knowing that all staff have experienced all of the treatments used and therefore are very well aware of what the patient experiences during and after therapies. I would have no reservations in recommending their services to anyone in need of help. Gladys -October 15

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.
