The General Medical Council has confirmed its position on the financing of remedial activity if a doctor's performance is found to be deficient under the new performance review procedures, which will be introduced on 1 July. The onus will be on the doctor to take the necessary action to remedy deficiencies identified during an assessment. Where there is need for remedial counselling or training the GMC will not pay for this. The previous government emphasised that there would be no new funds to finance remedial training, although health authorities and trusts may provide such support from existing funds.
