GDC / GMC registration
Please note that holding a full and current registration or ‘registerable’ status with the GDC is mandatory for the award of CCT.
We are aware of the additional cost and risk of double jeopardy regarding the need for both GMC an GDC registration and as a group have and continue to lobby for reduced/ amended fees to reflect this, so far unsuccessfully.
The GDC are one of the only organisations that at present do not provide reduced fees for maternity. Please read the latest guidance on GDC registration from the OMFS SAC:
GDC is Statutory body so obligated to accept letter, but they are variable and there have been suggestions that may rescind such letters, it is widely recommended from BAOMS council that you retain your GDC registration at least until the award of a CCT and appointment into a consultant post.
You must be GMC registered at all times in training.
