RCGP apologises to trainees after chaotic introduction of MRCGP equality reforms


I think you are spot on there Una Coales. Its financial worries that is causing this nonsense. As someone mentioned somewhere, and that dreadful Dr Meirion Thomas demonstrated with his stupid article in the DailyWail this morning, GPs are the laughing stock of the public, and even other RCs snigger at the RCGP. I am sorry, but just raising the bar for an exam that does not fully test a candidates full skills, and in fact can be biased against some, WILL NOT make the other RCs sit up and take note and give GPs respect. This fee fiasco only makes the RCGP look sillier , in my opinion. The only redemption would be for the RC tpo waive fees COMPLETELY for all the candidates on these 2 dates as an apology and an atonement . Will that be done though? Well, there is the matter re that expensive mortgage, so, brain wins over the heart and morals. Mega fail this time RCGP. Sorry.
