Hundreds of qualified doctors were released from GP training making their and their families lives miserable. Millions of tax payers money gone down in the drain.

LAUGHABLE AND DISGRACEFUL!!!! “Every clique is a refuge for incompetence. It fosters corruption and disloyalty, it begets cowardice, and consequently is a burden upon and a drawback to the progress of the country. Its instincts and actions are those of the pack.” ―Chiang Kai-shek -LWT
