Good Medical Practice
For registrants who are also doctors, the General Medical Council publishes a similar guide, Good Medical Practice, and this publication contains standards of clinical practice which will also be relevant. Good Medical Practice is also significant for doctors in relation to their professional appraisal and revalidation.
As there is important interaction, in the case of registrants who are also doctors, between Good Medical Practice and Good Public Health Practice, we have developed the 2nd edition of Good Public Health Practice to mirror as closely as possible the standards of clinical practice set out in Good Medical Practice. For example, the 2nd edition adopts the same 4 areas of practice.
