Porter: RCGP must 'acknowledge there is a problem' in exam row


The real issue is that doctors should be safe to practice and be able to communicate with their patients. Sadly many doctors are not safe to practice, nothing to do with their medical skills but the fact that we are told over 900 of them have criminal offences Re communication, many foreign doctors speak English, but not in a clear enough manner that we can understand them. Many foreign doctors have have very strong accents and speak far to fast fro us to keep up with their ramblings. I would also agree that there are some fantastic foreign doctors from all around the world. It does leave me wondering what happens to the born and bread English doctors that are becoming a rare breed? Everyone wants the best of care from the best doctors so please let us make sure any doctor working in Britain is nothing but the best in their field!
