Good Practice Guidelines

At Priorslegh Medical Centre, all our doctors are expected to follow the good medical practice guidelines set by the GMC.

Good Medical Practice sets out the principles and values on which good practice is founded; these principles together describe medical professionalism in action.

The guidance is addressed to doctors, but it is also intended to let the public know what they can expect from their doctors at this practice.

General Medical Council - Regulating Doctors to ensuring good medical practice:

The latest guidance published by the GMC came into effect on 22nd April 2013 and was updated on 29 April 2014 to include a new duty about doctors’ knowledge of the English language.

The revised document is available to download at:

This guidance will always be made available to all the Practice team either by paper format or on the Practice Intranet. Click the link below to view this:

In order to ensure all clinicians keep up-to-date with clinical standards and guidance, the Practice has regular meetings to discuss, review and implement the latest clinical evidence, e.g. NICE guidance and PACE (Prescribing and Clinical Effectiveness) bulletins.

In addition, all clinicians are required to evidence continuing professional development as part of their appraisal process.
