Many PCTs have now written guidelines for accreditation. Our local one states that GPs must: only treat BCCs on the trunk, carry out 40 procedures a year, attend all multidisciplinary team meetings where their patients are being discussed, complete 15 hours of annual continuing professional development and keep a log to be presented at operational meetings.
I'm afraid, Professor Steve Field, that your boat has sailed.
