GPs hit by rise in petty complaints

16th February 2010

General Medical Council data has shown a significant rise in the number of 'closed cases' against GPs.

Closed cases are considered too small for the GMC to become involved. There were 485 in 2007 and 717 in 2009. A spokesperson for the GMC said: "It could be that these sort of complaints are being misdirected. The GMC is not the right place for these complaints, which can even be about the state of a car park."
