Will it harm my GMC fitness to practise case if I acknowledge a mistake?

The GMC expects doctors to reflect on what has happened when they make a mistake, identify deficiencies in their practice and take action to address them. This is known as remediation, and the GMC takes it into account at fitness to practise hearings when deciding which sanctions, if any, are appropriate.

For more information about remediation, speak to your MDU adviser.
