What is a GMC warning
In the United Kingdom, a General Medical Council (GMC) warning is a formal notice given to a doctor by the GMC. Warnings are given to doctors if they have committed a serious breach of the medical code of conduct. A GMC warning can significantly affect a doctor’s career, as it may limit their ability to work in certain hospitals or practice medicine altogether.
