  • GP leaders to debate GMC no-confidence vote at today's LMCs conference

    Robin Sykes's comment 09 Mar 2018 4:41pm

    ’disengage from written reflection in both appraisal and revalidation until adequate safeguards are in place’ I think we should all copy and paste this statement into our forthcoming appraisals and submit nothing else. The GMC is an absolute disgrace and completely lost its way. It no longer functions as a regulatory body but seems to regard it's purpose as a lynch mob satisfying the demands of the baying public.

  • GMC criticised by its own regulator for handling of Bawa-Garba case

    The GMC have completely lost their way. They seem to feel their remit is to act on behalf of patients and to punish Doctors irrespective of the evidence. The GMC have entered an unholy alliance with NHSE and Government to ensure Doctors are held to account for failings of the service. GP's are especially vulnerable as held in utter contempt by both bodies.

  • Media attacks on GPs' pay are deplorable

    Excellent article. I completely agree with all the above. Its deeply saddening to see how much scorn and criticism we are subjected to. Its no wonder young Doctors shy away from being a GP and pursue a speciality.
