RCGP accused of discriminating against ethnic minority candidates in MRCGP legal case


I came to UK in 1978 and at every job I was asked when am I going back to my country-I continued and when the time came in 1990s to get a training year for General Practice the same scenario appeared that because I spent 12 years as anaesthetist I was branded as rusty but then there was some one who recognised my talent in North Wales and gave me the break-I have never looked back-since then I got the certificate--trained as a GPwSI diabetes -participated in many trials and became a clinical lead having done a very successful fund holding carrier-after retirement I am still working for a CCG as the clinical lead and tutor--so the policy of discrimination has never changed --even as anaesthetist I was always given the difficult tasks which gave me a buzz--and the very people who thought I was rusty were asking for advice when they were stuck with a complicated case of diabetes--so the college rather than wasting so much money should own up to the discriminatory attitude and move forwards and let people give to the society the many skills the so called failed candidates have-just use the commonsense
