Two doctors who participated in the recent industrial action over pensions are being investigated by the General Medical Council.
The GMC has confirmed that it had received complaints about two individual doctors who participated in the action on 21 June and that the complaints were related to the action they took.
If the GMC considers there are sufficient grounds, the doctors could face disciplinary hearings.
The GMC has said it would only take the matter forward if the industrial action by doctors compromised patient safety. For confidentiality reasons the GMC was unable to give further details about the nature and seriousness of the two complaints.
Before the action, then BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum emphasised that not contravening patient safety would be an absolute priority.
“Patient safety is our absolute priority. We have been clear throughout that any emergency care – or other care urgently needed by patients – will be provided. We are undertaking this action with extreme reluctance,” he said.
