It is the responsibility of the General Medical Council (GMC), working closely with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), to set the standards and clinical practice for general practitioners and approve education and training curricula to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide high quality patient care.

The GMC and the RCGP regularly review their standards and curricula to ensure they reflect good practice and the latest clinical evidence.
