The challenges faced by doctors with disabilities

The challenges faced by doctors with disabilities The regulatory body which oversees the education and training of doctors says there are “unacceptable barriers” in recruiting and educating disabled medics.

Around one in five of the UK population has a disability, yet the General Medical Council estimates only 3% of medics and doctors have a declared disability.

It’s now calling for universities and employers to provide equal access and has launched new guidance to try and improve recruitment and retention.
