The NHS has always relied on Asian GPs, and will need them even more in future


Dr Sarmah. Your own record of selfless service to the care of patients is very common in doctors who arrived from the Indian subcontinent. It is a pity that your compassion, hardwork and dedication were never properly acknowledged by other doctors in charge who turned a blind eye to discrimination. This prevented you from completing your hoped for path towards consultant status. For some doctors still, "training" will never end. May your retirement continue to be a long and happy one.
