14 Medical Accidents
5. What if I want to complain about a professional's behaviour?
You may want to complain about an individual doctor or other healthcare professional, for example because you think they did not act ethically, or are a danger to other patients. Most healthcare professionals are members of a professional organisation. There are different organisations for different professions; for example, the General Medical Council (GMC) for doctors, the General Dental Council (GDC) for dentists, and the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for nurses, midwives and health visitors. These organisations have the power to stop a healthcare professional from treating patients, but will normally investigate only more serious complaints. If your complaint is less serious, for example if a healthcare professional was rude, you could complain to the organisation that employs them. The matter may then be investigated through the organisation's internal disciplinary procedures. See ‘Further help’ for details.
