RCoA response to GMC consultation on Securing the licence to practise: introducing a Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA)

The Royal College of Anaesthetists has responded to the consultation by the GMC on Securing the licence to practise: introducing a Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA). European doctors wishing to practise in the four nations of the UK are not currently required to meet a common threshold for entry onto the UK medical register, or to pass a standard assessment to test their skills and competence. The fundamental case for introducing a medical licensing assessment is to demonstrate that doctors entering UK practise meet a common threshold, no matter where they obtained their medical degree. The College is supportive of the proposals for MLA as this will allow for definitive attainment standard for both UK and overseas graduates, and the introduction of standardised process would give assurances to patients and the public.
