Reports relating to this case:

  • Race discrimination: Complaint about refusal of registration was in time

    1 June 1997

    In Rovenska v General Medical Council, the Court of Appeal holds that, if the GMC's requirement that a Czech-qualified doctor should pass a test to be eligible to apply for limited registration was inherently discriminatory, it would be committing an act of unlawful race discrimination each time it refused to allow the doctor limited registration without first taking the test.

  • Challenge to professional criteria
