GMC and NMC independent support

Have you raised concerns with the General Medical Council or Nursing and Midwifery Council, or are you a witness? If so, you’re able to access independent telephone support.

We understand that you’re probably going through a difficult time. Whether you think you’d benefit from confidential emotional support, or would prefer practical help and advice, our specially trained team would be happy to talk to you.

You can contact us any time – we’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our telephone numbers are:

  • 0300 303 3709 – if you’re in contact with the GMC
  • 0300 303 3731 – if you’re in contact with the NMC.

Calls to these numbers are charged at local rates.

What support do we offer?

You can talk to us about how you’re feeling. This could be about an ongoing GMC/NMC investigation into concerns, or about events that gave rise to these concerns. Or you might want to talk to somebody about the impact these events have had on you. We can listen to you and guide you through a difficult time.

If it’s practical help and advice you’d like, we can talk you through options and suggestions to manage the situation and any impact on your life.

If we think another organisation may be able to offer you specialist support we can put you in contact with them. We have an extensive knowledge of support organisations to meet a range of needs.

Our service is free, independent, confidential and non-judgemental. We won’t share any information with the GMC or NMC (unless you want us to). Our focus is providing you the best possible support, help and advice.

We won’t know any specific details about the GMC’s or NMC’s investigation, unless you choose to share it with us. Your named GMC/NMC contact is the best person to speak to if you’ve got specific questions about the investigation.
