3) how many of those inadequate homes nominated individuals who are doctors are referred to gmc for fitness to practice?
4) how many of those doctors have registered managers who are employed at the care homes and the doctors are only the named individual?
5) how many doctors get struck off the gmc due to thier non involvement in the care home and hence rated as inadequate?

Dear Monika

Your information request - F17/9258/CA

Thank you for your email dated 21 November 2017.  

 

I’ve looked at your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).  Unfortunately we are unable to assist with much of the
information you are seeking.

 

The GMC does not hold information relating to doctors who own or manage
care homes.  The administration of care homes is a matter for the CQC.

 

We may hold some information that relates to the topic of your question
5.  When the GMC opens fitness to practise investigations about doctors,
we categorise the type of misconduct by defined allegations.  We could
conduct a search of our investigations database to find cases involving
care homes.  This would capture allegations such as:  ‘regulations breach
re. home/clinic’, ‘maladministration of residential/nursing home’.  We may
then be able to tell you the number of doctors and any disciplinary
outcomes.  I appreciate that isn’t exactly what you’ve asked, but if you
feel it would be useful, you may wish to re-submit a request along these
lines, together with a date range.

 

Please let me know if you have any further queries.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Christine Abdy
