Figures show widening shortfall in GP training with 20% of places unfilled


GPs are unenviable profession,unprotected by BMA and inadequately by Medical Defence bodies. NHS imposes unworkable practices on GPs;a qualified bank practice nurse is replaced by a Practice nurse in training. Trainee receptionists are used posing as administrators. A functional EMIS IT system is replaced by a thrice in a consultation freezing/collapsing ALTGP system. When the GP complains his career is destroyed by referring him to The GMC.Is this British Justice! GMC MTS take NHs complaints seriously ignoring the written rebuttal presented by The GP. When The GP has because of NHS persecutions not earned as a GP expect him to travel to Manchester unprotected by his defence body.The Defence body had got him reinstalled as a Specialist gP and after that refused to continue protecting him
