Headline

GMC named as defendant in judicial review over MRCGP exam

Comment

RCGP also writes: "Our examination is in place because as a medical royal college, our principle responsibility is to the nation’s patients. It is our job to ensure that, through a fair process, all of the doctors who qualify as GPs meet the requisite standards for ensuring safe patient care. That is what the public expects of us, and that is what we deliver." Is there anyone who do not believe that patient safety is paramount. No one. But the context in which RCGP release these statements is certainly disappointing. In other words RCGP believes 70% doctors of a particular group are unsafe.
