  • I am pleased to see steps started to be taken to ultimately find a solution to this matter, howevere this seems to be of a slow pace whilst data set gathered then further research to take place..etc.. Many doctors lives have been, being and will be destroyed whilst investigation taking place.. Actions needs to be taken now to stop this from happining and decisions about the fate of those already released from training needs to be brave and constructive in order to provide justice to everyone..

    Dear GMC and BIDA and BPDF(Pakistani doctors forum) and BAPIO and Medic-law, all of you have to convince the RCGP to stop the exam now and let the three hundred trainees back and rectify the situation immediately. No point in keep talking. We need prompt action. As the effects of unfairness of CSA are becoming more evident , more people are coming forward with their experiences.
    Many are depressed,distraught lost hope,experienced family problems including breakdowns. This situation cannot continue.
