I AM VERY SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THIS. MAY GOD KEEP HER SOUL IN HEAVENLY PEACE AND GIVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY STRENGTH TO BEAR THE LOSS.
Any prediction on political interference on GP work/NHS?
Thanks for froviding further details.
I found your experience interesting and an eye opener. Can you complete your story by letting us know what happened to you since? did they terminate your contract? what action did you take since? Are you still in business?
I think old days are coming back . In the past GP used to live above the surgery premises . The NHS should provide a family accommodation for GP so that he/she could fulfil his/her obligation and maintain work/life balance to some extent. I think it is a crazy suggestion to a crazy proposal.
I am glad that at last GMC is under scrutiny by media and legal profession on the issue of Racism. In the past GMC's action on this issue has been questionable and could be seen racist especially when GMC de- recognised the medical degree of Harare(Salisbury)medical school after the recognition of independence of Zimbabwe(Rhodesia) from UK in 1980 immediately for full registration as the country was run by majority black government. Their degree was recognised between the period of 1965 -1980 when the country declared unilateral independence in 1965 and run by conservative white minority government. The reason was never been explained why the standard of the medical school deteriorated over night to get the status of de-recognition. I am sure , There are many examples one may find if the GMC's archives are looked at.
VISITOR COMING TO UK SHOULD HAVE A HEALTH INURANCE BEFORE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO ENTER IN THE COUNTRY AND GP SHOULD BE ALLOWED CHARGE HIM/HER AS PRIVATE PATIENT FOR GIVING SERVICES AS REQUIRED. THE VISITOR CAN CLAIM BACK THE FEES FROM THEIR INSURER LATER ON.
