For the first time, the GMC survey will ask about wellbeing , impact of tiredness and workload

The General Medical Council, has launched its annual national survey for doctors in training and trainers, which runs until Wednesday 2 May 2018. For this first time, the GMC will be asking a series of questions around wellbeing and the impact of tiredness and workload. The surveys are taking place at a challenging time for doctors and employers. A high response rate however, will provide vital, robust and comprehensive data about training posts and programmes. This data can then be used to measure the quality of postgraduate medical education and training, to help employers find out how doctors view the quality of training within their trust and any additional support required for trainers. A strong response is encouraged from both doctors in training and trainers to enable the GMC to improve their understanding of issues and how they can develop solutions and support.
