The RCP has responded to a report by the General Medical Council (GMC) titled Fair to Refer? It explores the disproportionate number of fitness to practise referrals of the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) doctors made to the GMC.
The RCP has elected Dr Sarah Clarke as its new clinical vice president, following a vote of over 4,000 of its fellows. The RCP has also elected five new members to its Council, and appointed three new censors.
The GMC has published the report of the independent review of gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide. The GMC commissioned the review following the death of Jack Adcock and subsequent conviction of Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba for gross negligence manslaughter.
