health assessment

A term of art for a purposed assessment of a doctor in the context of General Medical Council (UK) fitness-to-practise proceedings. In a health assessment, the GMC sends the doctor whose practice has been questioned to be assessed by two medical examiners/practitioners—usually consultant psychiatrists—independent of the GMC, who report their findings to the GMC, including a written report on whether the doctor is fit to practise.
