GMC accepts new English test

The medical regulator, GMC have announced they will routinely be accepting an additional test as proof of English language skills.

The Occupational English Test (OET), designed for healthcare professionals and already recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, will be accepted as an alternative to the already existing International English Language Test System (IELTS), for overseas doctors wishing to practice medicine in the UK.

Doctors will be able to take the test in more than 100 locations across 40 countries.
