The ICGP operates a professional competence scheme (PCS) for GPs under arrangement with the Irish Medical Council (IMC).
As of May 2011, all doctors on the Medical Council register are legally obliged to maintain their professional competence by enrolling in professional competence schemes and following requirements set by the Medical Council.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01 676 3705 and we will be happy to assist you.
Please note that the current professional competence year runs until 30 April 2017.
