This is very true and I hope Dr Turner takes this view across to the RCGP and they can push this forward as a national policy with universities.
Entrance to Medical Courses should not be based on A levels alone and this is depriving this country of Good Doctors and particularly good GP’s.
I feel that it is just not the wealth but the policy of A levels dictating who becomes a doctor is the problem. As Dr Turner says you don’t need to be very intelligent to be a Doctor and there
Should be other ways to assess one’s suitability to become a Doctor.
I value my receptionists and it is the system as previously noted which gives them a bad name. I think it is time we stopped calling them receptionists as what they do is so vital and they perform a variety of roles to keep the practice running.
I thought of calling them Doctor Assistants like Dental Assistants. Any name suggestions are welcome.
