GPs to get immunisation training

Unfortunately it is not only Asian doctors who face GMC referral after a nonsensical complaint from an annoyed and unreasonable patient.

I face such a complaint because a patient did not like a report I did for her employer. Even now I feel the report was excellent and if anything biased in the patent's favour. I am Caucasian so colour does not seem to be the problem.

Other patients have threatened me and my colleagues with similar action including one who said he would refer me to the GMC unless I worked six hours for a voluntary organisation of his choice.
