erasure

A General Medical Council (GMC) (UK) term of art for removing a medical practitioner’s name from the register of active doctors.

Types of erasure
Non-disciplinary erasure
• Administrative erasure—erasure from the register for medical practitioners in the UK due to non-payment of registration fees.
• Voluntary erasure—an administrative exercise by the GMC which doesn’t imply misconduct by the practitioner, but means that he/she cannot practise as a doctor in the UK.
• Constructive erasure—a term of art referring to a series of sanctions by the GMC against a medical practitioner that are regarded as so onerous as to constitute erasure without actual erasure.

Disciplinary (involuntary) erasure
