Submit your questions for RCGP chair Dr Maureen Baker


Many questions but honed down to a few 1. Why is the RCGP recruitment video so boring? How is picking up scripts from reception going to entice young people? Why didn't you show GPs working on cruise ships, the antarctic, being involved with education, doing endoscopies etc? These are all the things that make the career so great as it is versatile 2. Why do trainees (and trainers) have to go through so many hoops to get qualified? Why do we have to indulge in so much navel gazing when what they really need is the ability to multi-task, manage uncertainty, take risks and lead a team. Training doesn't equip them for a lot of stuff ( I speak as a Trainer and Educator) 3. If the college is about standing up for quality and clinical governance, is there not an issue with the mushrooming of clinical contacts that can occur in one day's surgery? Is this not a serious threat to our standards of care?
