About the Medical Council 
The Medical Council is an independent statutory body established under the Medical Practitioners Act 1978 (updated in 2007).  It is the regulatory body for doctors and has a statutory role in protecting the public by promoting the highest professional standards amongst doctors practising in Ireland.  The Medical Council maintains the Register of Medical Practitioners who are legally permitted to carry out medical work in Ireland.  

The Council also sets the standards for medical education and training in Ireland.  It oversees lifelong learning and skills development throughout doctors’ careers through its professional competence requirements.  It is charged with promoting good medical practice.  The Medical Council is also where the public may make a complaint against a doctor.
