GMC should defend its revalidation plans, say GPs
Dr Thomas Bloch believes toughening up revalidation will be ineffectual and mean GPs get to spend even less time with their patients.
'I don't think there's any evidence that GPs have such poor knowledge after 10 years in practice,' said Dr Bloch, a GP in Broadway, Worcestershire.
'But I expect the Chief Medical Officer is going to try to be seen to be tightening up procedures and introduce some sort of competence test. This has a momentum of its own.'
