PRESS RELEASE: DAUK responds to Williams review report

The Doctors’ Association UK welcomes the report of the Williams review into gross negligence manslaughter in healthcare. In particular, we welcome the recommendation that the General Medical Council (GMC) loses the right to appeal the decisions of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, and also that regulators, including the GMC, will lose their power to request reflective practice material as part of Fitness to Practise investigations.
