This chapter outlines the aims and objectives of the book and its focus on regulatory reform of the General Medical Council and how it investigates complaints against a doctor’s fitness to practise alongside the introduction of medical revalidation to periodically test professional competence. To set the scene to this analysis in subsequent chapters, the emergence of risk-based approaches to professional regulation are outlined as well as how these have transformed traditional ‘doctors only’ approaches to medical governance.

Keywords:   fitness to practice, general medical council, medical regulation, risk
