5. What if I want to complain about a professional's behaviour?
You may want to complain about an individual doctor or other healthcare professional, for example because you think they did not act ethically or are a danger to other patients.

You may choose to do this through their professional organisation. Most healthcare professionals are members of one. There are different organisations for different professions; for example, the General Medical Council (GMC) for doctors, the General Dental Council (GDC) for dentists, and the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for nurses, midwives and health visitors. These organisations have the power to stop a healthcare professional treating patients, but will normally investigate only more serious complaints.

If your complaint is less serious, for example if a healthcare professional was rude, you could complain to the organisation that employs them. Their employer may then investigate the matter through internal disciplinary procedures.
