DOCTOR INDEX NUMBER

The General Medical Council allocates all doctors a GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL REFERENCE NUMBER on their first contact with the General Medical Council.

Description

The General Medical Council allocates all doctors a GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL REFERENCE NUMBER on their first contact with the General Medical Council.

A doctor can be both a GENERAL PRACTITIONER and a Hospital CONSULTANT, and therefore hold a DOCTOR INDEX NUMBER, GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PPD CODE and a CONSULTANT CODE simultaneously.
