A faulty production line

Dr Mohammed Saqib Anwar

Young GP leader

Pulse Power 50 2015 logo 120x110

Described as ‘very articulate’, Dr Mohammed Saqib Anwar is the youngest and first GP within five years of qualification to be appointed as an RCGP faculty chair.

In his work as medical secretary of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland LMC, he added his voice to the chorus of GP leaders calling on the Government to reimburse medical indemnity costs, and called for caution when his CCG announced it was bringing in US-trained physician associates to work in local practices. He has also been appointed as a primary care adviser for the CQC.

  • It's nice to see that in the dismal morass of current GP morale that 'freshies' are able and willing to challenge the status quo. Dr Saqib Anwar is a bright star who has helped a number of local GPs, including myself, with a range of professional dilemmas. I wish him the best in his future and really hope that he and others like him can bring stability and respect to to our profession again.

    I have known Dr Saqib Anwar since he was a RCGP AiT Chair on Council and he has always stood up bravely and spoken on behalf of GP trainees. He put in a Council motion as an AiT Chair which seemed unheard of to do, but he is extremely advanced well beyond his years!

    He never backed down as a faculty rep over CSA, despite meeting resistance from the executive table. I congratulate him for being the youngest faculty chair and making this Pulse local list. In my opinion he is more deserving of the Pulse Power 50 list. He is a GP leader of the highest integrity and a man of impeccable honour.
