Self-declaration on Probity
Probity means being honest and trustworthy, and acting with integrity: this is at the heart of medical professionalism.
3 Good medical practice describes what is expected of all doctors registered with the General Medical Council (GMC). It is your responsibility to be familiar with Good medical practice and the explanatory guidance which supports it, and to follow the guidance they contain.
Act with honesty and integrity
Honesty
65 You must make sure that your conduct justifies your patients’ trust in you and the public’s trust in the profession.
66 You must always be honest about your experience, qualifications and current role.
67 You must act with honesty and integrity when designing, organising or carrying out research, and follow national research governance guidelines and GMC guidance.
17 You must be satisfied that you have consent or other valid authority before you carry out any examination or investigation, provide treatment or involve patients or volunteers in teaching or research.

Communicating information
68 You must be honest and trustworthy in all your communication with patients and colleagues. This means you must make clear the limits of your knowledge and make reasonable checks to make sure any information you give is accurate.
69 When communicating publicly, including speaking to or writing in the media, you must maintain patient confidentiality. You should remember when using social media that communications intended for friends or family may become more widely available.
70 When advertising your services, you must make sure the information you publish is factual and can be checked, and does not exploit patients’ vulnerability or lack of medical knowledge.
71 You must be honest and trustworthy when writing reports, and when completing or signing forms, reports and other documents. You must make sure that any documents you write or sign are not false or misleading.

a You must take reasonable steps to check the information is correct.

b You must not deliberately leave out relevant information.
41 You must be honest and objective when writing references, and when appraising or assessing the performance of colleagues, including locums and students. References must include all information relevant to your colleagues’ competence, performance and conduct.
Openness and legal or disciplinary proceedings
72 You must be honest and trustworthy when giving evidence to courts or tribunals. You must make sure that any evidence you give or documents you write or sign are not false or misleading.

a You must take reasonable steps to check the information.

b You must not deliberately leave out relevant information.
73 You must co-operate with formal inquiries and complaints procedures and must offer all relevant information while following the guidance in Confidentiality.
74 You must make clear the limits of your competence and knowledge when giving evidence or acting as a witness.
75 You must tell us without delay if, anywhere in the world:

a you have accepted a caution from the police or been criticised by an official inquiry

b you have been charged with or found guilty of a criminal offence

c another professional body has made a finding against your registration as a result of fitness to practise procedures.
76 If you are suspended by an organisation from a medical post, or have restrictions placed on your practice, you must, without delay, inform any other organisations you carry out medical work for and any patients you see independently.
Honesty in financial dealings
77 You must be honest in financial and commercial dealings with patients, employers, insurers and other organisations or individuals.
78 You must not allow any interests you have to affect the way you prescribe for, treat, refer or commission services for patients.
79 If you are faced with a conflict of interest, you must be open about the conflict, declaring your interest formally, and you should be prepared to exclude yourself from decision making.
80 You must not ask for or accept – from patients, colleagues or others – any inducement, gift or hospitality that may affect or be seen to affect the way you prescribe for, treat or refer patients or commission services for patients. You must not offer these inducements.
