‘...I just don't understand (and never have) how we could have a 'contract' that can be re-written, edited and expanded at will by the government. That isn't a 'contract' ...is it?? ...’
Have never understood that either?

There’s no evidence that the GMC have ‘reflected’ on the decades of damage they inflicted on the NHS medical profession. At this time, they seem to be playing a waiting game and intend returning to their usual oppressive ‘self satisfied’ regime. The only sensible advice to medics in the UK continues to be RLE or not get involved in the first place?
(there’s the dizzy ‘forlorn hope’ that SARs2 will clear-out the ‘petty bureaucrats’ but no point waiting for that)?
Call me a bigger cynic, as above would more accurately read:
‘All donations will be received by blokes whose ethos correlates to the BMA’s mission: ‘We keep the powder dry for you’.
So the chap from the MDU says:
'Again, the GMC recognises in exceptional circumstance you may need to be more flexible, and they will judge doctors accordingly with the context of the situation they are working in.’
Do you want to run that past me ‘again’? as it doesn’t seem to have validity in most doctors experience.
I could ‘strongly recommend’ various activities to a variety of regulatory agencies but would likely get banned from this site and ignored by those agencies anyway. So the delightful recommendations from those diligent folk at NHSE, remain recommendations until clear legally enforceable directions are issued by those agencies and they must state which parts of the UK & NI they apply to.
Consistently predictable and consistently demoralising.
Roll Up, Roll Up, come and frolic with your colleagues in the plague. Someone else may pay you or maybe they won’t. You may live through it or maybe you won’t. Alhamdulillah
Suspension of appraisals seems to continue to be the responsibility of ROs and appraisers, as the GMC seems to be just cancelling the revalidation part of the process (I.e. the non face to face part / their own backroom office work)? Very helpful indeed.
As you have lifted the crushing weight of appraisal from my shoulders, I am ready to saddle up and gallop forth. Now where’s my armour? Oh! it’s not arrived yet!
That might just come true.
Like the way you tell them but shudder at the possible outcome.
To Cedric - you know that and I know that
- the paragraph is a ‘cut and paste’ from the article above...
And Pulse frequently gets awards for their reporting - lots of reflection required by many maybe?
And some might suggest that those who have ‘bought a pig ina poke’ will fairly consistently defend their judgment and action?

Sounds ‘iffy’ and ‘mealy mouthed’ to me.
‘Revalidation’ is automatic after a satisfactorily completed five year cycle of appraisals.
Does the GMC mean that ‘appraisals’ will be ‘deferred for a year’?
And the £1,600 refund would also be greatly appreciated.
It could be a very bad start to one’s career OR it could be a good one. Make it the latter (and it’s debatable that CSA has improved healthcare delivery).
‘We need well-trained GP trainees to support and it’s not fair for anyone to let their future hang in balance. I hope our health secretary Matt Hancock can exert pressure on both GMC and RCGP to come together for an immediate decision to offer GP trainees summative assessment to finish their current training for at least a year.’
Still no mention of the wasteful efforts of doctors and unnecessary contacts that are appraisals? Continue waiting for common sense, justice and proper management.

Simplistic unrealistic comment from the Pretty Poorly Educated Matt Hancock PPE as expected from someone with no insight or qualifications.
‘Goes to show why the profession should self regulate. Why the head of the GMC has to be a doctor.’ JUST SO
Just awaiting the response from the GMC now (‘To Regulate or Let Die’ - a James Bond remake).
Jeremy was the best Health Minister ever and now he going to be the best Prime Minister ever (like much better than Boris).
