Why wait. just cancel your direct debit with the RCPG and save £££. You won't miss them at all.
Why would anyone still pay £500 to be a member of the RCPG? beggars belief...
Become a doctor. Just leave the UK as soon as you qualify to somewhere that appreciates, respects and looks after doctors. Not the GMC. Not the NHS. Not the UK.
During system failures, only the doctors lose their livlihood and get charged with gross negligence man slaughter. Everyone else gets of scot free. The powers that be do not care if you were the only doctor covering the whole of wales, you are totally liable.
never worked in general practice so doesn't really understand.

Have they not suffered enough.......
Thank you. the best laugh I have had all day. currently on duty suffering it...
Pharmacy "I don't want to take responsibility for this (but thanks for paying me per patient). You must see (an overworked) GP today".
Only 2.3m for GPs and 2.1m for pharmacy? Really?
It has already been confirmed LLPs will not be an option as "it provides no further protection". Despite the lawyers and Accountants all being LLPs. The answer is going to be carry with GMS and Fully liable partnerships, but consider extra funded roles (such as pharmacists, paramedics, physicians associates). So no change in terms of liability for the GP and the death of partnerships will continue.
Legend. Thank you Alan.
Don't forget all the following are avenues to complain and each one will require further time to answer and appologise irrespective of if you have done the right thing or not:
Local complaints procedure in surgery
Another non GP telling people who have been doing this job since before they were born how it is! Great. Thank you for the insight.
Until the BMA is clear that they are only about the doctors they represent (and have nothing to do with patient care, there are enough public bodies and the doctors themselves who deal with that side ), they are not getting a single penny from me.
Naive but you will learn. Enjoy the feeling while it lasts. Soon every one of these you will bat back to their "usual GP". Trust me.
no other profession is treated as guilty until proven innocent. Dr's have no human rights and we need to fight back to ensure no one is suspended or made to feel like a criminal until the cases has been fully investigated. The letter that comes through the door clearly states "your revalidation is on hold while we investigate you". This needs to stop. if you are an appraiser or do any work for NHSE and you get a complaint, you can no longer work for them while under investigation. This can go on for years. This is not fair and against any human rights. This needs to stop now.
The last RCGP chair said "it has never been a better time to be GP". This was used by the then PM and health secretary to their advantage many a time. Now that he has the photo, Hunt will go on about when he went to the RCGP and talked to the grassroots GP (SIC), say what he wants and the average daily fail reader will just accept whatever he says. WE ARE DOOMED and losing the PR battle while having a PR done to grassroots GP's. Well done RCGP. The naive bloggers will support you whatever you do to get to where they want.
stop aspirin. patient has a stroke. MDU. Stop adcal. Patient has a fracture. MDU. stop something, something happens...mdu. Why would you do this?
I didn't even waste the money on a stamp. Just cancelled my direct debit online and they came asking me to join them again. I had to laugh. Enjoying spending the money on useful things in life. Save your stamp. Also a lot of money if you have any sense. Ask what does £500+ a year membership give me, then is it really worth it. then log onto internet banking and cancel direct debit. simples.
