This is also well-suited to members who work in poorly resourced and supported environments, who may be time constrained and hence find themselves placed at a disadvantage by the legislative and regulatory burden. To facilitate the process, we offer a continuous approach that is also fully compliant with GMC guidance. This can include a full concierge service to assist with the management of your portfolio. Additionally, a programmed framework of reminders and regular guidance meetings ensure that you remain on track.
