  • Struck-off junior doctor to appeal High Court decision

    V12exit's comment 08 Feb 2018 6:40am

    I don’t see why we pay exhorbitant fees to organisations that clearly don’t have our best interest as their top priority. The MPS and MDU fees are crippling; the farcical GMC fees are mandatory; yet at best all we can hope for is lacklustre representation and sweeping dismissal if we dare to appear disgruntled.

    Exoneration of Bawa-Garba will be in part redemption.

    The crowdfunding link should actually be a topic...

  • Bawa-Garba: this case is far from closed

    V12exit's comment 01 Feb 2018 5:45am

    Collectively as a profession, we are under attack. All of us are Hawa-Garbas. All of us at some point have been in her shoes; but have luckily escaped the horror of being hung out to dry because we failed to be super-human. But here we are; exposed, vulnerable. We need to rise up as a profession and defend our core principles and practices. This case is a IMG_0929.JPGdangerous precedent; which if ultimately successful will drive another nail in our profession’s coffin.
    I have fled the UK as I fear for my career. Now I seek refuge in another country which gives medicine the respect it deserves.

  • Ultimate Hell Week: Reality TV or just another day for a GP?

    V12exit's comment 09 May 2017 7:22am

    This just shows that being a GP is just the most arduous role ever! If one can survive such extreme testing conditions, and not give up, yet with the role of being a GP being seemingly comparable; that says a whole lot.

    Well done. I'm not that resilient... I've given up.
