The murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and many others has contributed to the growing success of the continuing Black Lives Matter movement. The ongoing battles of the Black community and allies, requires action from wider society to make substantial progress. We must all play our part to bring about the systemic change that needs to happen. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of resources that we hope will offer useful information on Black Minds Matter.

Myth Buster

“Once I’m a doctor, if I have a mental health condition, the GMC will automatically put me in their fitness to practise procedures.”

The GMC says:
The GMC is only interested when a doctor’s mental illness puts patients at risk. The vast majority of doctors with mental health conditions are not a risk to patients. If a doctor understands their condition and seeks appropriate support, the GMC does not get involved. The GMC never removes doctors from the register solely because they have a mental health condition.
