Dear Mr Kumar

 

Thank you for your email dated 26 April 2017, in which you request
information about doctors involved in fitness to practise investigations
in the last three years.

 

In response to your request please find below a link to our State of
medical education and practice in the UK report: 2016:

 

Here you will find information about doctors investigated, including a
breakdown by ethnicity and outcomes:

[1]http://www.gmc-uk.org/GMC_SOMEP_2016_Ref...

 

I also attach as requested the ethnicity breakdown of the FTP
investigation teams and case examiners. Please note the attached data does
not include temporary staff or contractors as we do not hold ethnicity
data for them.

 

I hope this information is useful.

 

Kind regards

 

Louise
