At least Nye Bevan had the sense to stuff our mouths with real gold.Still, in times of austerity.
I've worked in Sydney for 8yrs, just received my annual MRCGP invoice. I'm considering not rejoining because they can't do anything for me. I only carried on because I was told it would help if I came back to practice in the UK- however that doesn't appear to be the case. What have other overseas GPs done?
Before Xmas ,NHS England had an advert in our Australian equivalent of Pulse magazine advising UK GPs that the UK would like them to come back & how they could help..
I've replied twice, expressing an interest.
However they never got back to me.
Not good first impressions.
I have elderly parents back in UK & I'd love to be near them in their remaining years
However, comments from Pulse & its readers over the past few years make me concerned that nothing has changed in the UK, that it has become worse.
I'm British, a UK graduate, MRCGP trained & 9yrs in UK as GP. I left UK 8yrs & work 10hr days,5-6 days a week in a busy Sydney City practice.
My parents back in UK are getting older & I'd be keen to come back. Yet revalidation , trying to get onto a performers list ,being told I may be assessed as if I'd not been practicing is disheartening.
