This is a white-wash. GMC's response is not good enough, to trust them with our lives. It is an organisation that serves interests of the patients and as such should be paid by the govt; should not act as a regulator, can contest cases in court, as they like.
It seems like pulse has an agenda here. To draw a conclusion from this survey with incomplete data from feb 11th , is misleading. So there is. problem with the systems which needs exploring, if we assume this data to be valid , to tirn it into gender pay gap issue is not the right way forward. Today’s survey 28%are working beyond 10 hrs and in a similar study over 50% GPS reported working mor than 11 hours a day , a few days ago . What to believe ?
Isn't this what GPs are already doing, so they respond to BATHE and how on earth are you going to solve their social problems. Empathy should be part of consultation anyway.
I don't understand why a consultation model is being shoved down the throats of GPs now.
You clearly didn’t thought this through, even if an IMG gets a visa the hostility remains , the reason so many of trained img GPs have left Uk . There were times when surplus doctors were aviailable in thousands about 15 years ago so what’s the point of repeating the same . The most important issue here is retention , to be honest don’t enter to work for long , this the spirit now .
And now how do we restore confidence in medical rgulator and the process of revalidation . I don’t this this going to happen in near future so expect health services to deteriorate further.
Most of the are immigrants and the whole system is biased against these poor guys who are screwed in exams , by the biased system and on tribunals . Do not come to uk as you will be the scapgoats for the elite.
CG was responsible for excessive stress to GP trainees as chair. I am glad that I have left the system and hope not to return because nothing is going to change.
Just leave the country anyone who can. your lives will be much better
now worth working
doctors are not supposed to laugh - be careful
Ok so you will fill the GP posts resulting in stretched hospital staff . So where is the gain. The brain drain is signifiacnt and is due to the culture of blame. Unless you imporve the situation on the ground no one is going to stay , more trainees to be exported.
" The BMA responded to the survey, calling the results were ‘very concerning’
I know BME doctors who felt discriminated by treatment of BMA.
5000 trained IMG GPs would have left UK by the time you recruit these new doctors. Even if they join now they will leavig in 7-10 years time.
so why waste your time and energy on this fruitless exercise when you can reduce red tape so trained Ex pats can come back .
is the NHS / GMC , Health service going to compensate the drs in Question?
I am sure the outcome would be different if this was Dr Barwa-Garba.
This secratry or who so ever is this should be sacked for such comments.
HSL , I dont even know what she does , my only relationship with rcgp is that I pay their fee and her salary.
I cant see the light yet.
Politicians must reflect on their decisions in GMC style, "damned if you and damned if you don't " and throw their reflection to a bunch of lawyers to see how long they last, Hunt will be the first victim.
I have not faith in you Mr Massey , please resign.
I have come across many racist patients but who are you going to fight , the doctos , hospitals , GMC offcourse. So kept quiet.
but things for me have changed not for alot of junior immigrant doctors , Unfortunately all the equality talk is for the white patient and doctors and uk is repressive country with rampant racist and regulations akin to slavery in the medical professions.
