''To come and work in the UK, doctors in Europe need to have an IELTS level to 7 to 7,5. There are only a few doctors out there who already have that level, which is why we said we’re going to find doctors who have an IELTS level of 5 or 6 and train them up to 7.5.''
if you can compromise with the language then DROP THE CSA SCORES FOR IMGS to match !! lol
.needless to say..bullying is everyday routine; some gp trainees have had it rough from hospital clinical supervisors ; intimidation and pointing how 'useless' gp speciality is ,instead of being mentors and giving guidance out to ruin someone's life with baseless trainee reports. its pathetic..'as they say its how the system works!'unfortunately . hope some change comes about..
any funded lawyers to proof read...?
Dr. Cusack opened my eyes here,''Dr Bawa-Garba reflected extensively on the clinical care she gave. Documents containing her reflective comments were seen by a prosecution QC prior to his extensive cross-examination and therefore fed into the criminal court process. The GMC have stated that reflective practice was not used, and have issued a factsheet for the profession. However, the Medical Protection Society, which previously represented Dr Bawa-Garba, has admitted that it ‘may well be the case’ that reflections fed into the trial''
WELLL DONE Dr. BG! nurse Taylor was pardoned, nurse Amaro strucked / nothing happened to consultant; participants of the whole team were differently handled, what can explain this if it was to do with system failure, work load and lack of supervision ?
prescribe a pistol or antibiotic!!
couldnt stop laughing!hilarious
so as we wait for 3mths or so, if NSAIDS not helping, can nice agree that gp start steroids? then assess /take care of osteoporosis as well; as it seems by the time rheum sees patients hands may have started to deform..
..positive impact? missed the point!
@bemused, just cracked my rib!oouch!
Dr.Sidhu you say as it is
harry well said - under table politics& statistics of how many should get thro'exams, how many to retain for service provision.'
painfully true.. time we get it once and for all 29 march 2019 is right here and uk will no longer have flexibility of employing international doctors.. canada, nz, au all promising.
mmmh .. face to face interpreters is a norm ;appt lasting 20 mins/ got a few patients needing sign language polish,slovakia,asian,afghan/ no braile yet..interesting csa being a communication exam would this be an area to be tested..
..i thought abt the confidentiality too... oh its a Dr.SAWYER..
when plenty GP trainees are trapped in 'mrcgp limbo' then further introduce retraining scheme ; ?cheap labour?service provision
..needless to say
100% agree on biased assessment of csa ,examiner looking outta window, dozzing off and when opens eyes sees black or brown trainee and puts x-ses! forgetting was over £1600 for a 3hr exam-shameful
when you are honest you are heavily penalised
not to mention how much tax payers money is used for months of surveillance of international criminals who still manage to get through porous immigration before being caught or let out for'lack of evidence'..ridiculous .Good luck Antony , but with your mrcgp completed Australia would willingly take you..
plenty of Judas'es ...reminds me of what evil Shipman did but his eventual arrest came too late
no need to bend an exam, give assessment that it deserves.test knowledge
