What is the truth about the MRCGP?


@1:17 practice manager I agree entirely. I actually used to be quite proud when I gained my MRCGP qualification in 2008. I felt it was recognition of my hard work and dedication and it made me feel like I'd "made it". A sign of recognition if you like. However since them I've been disgusted with various scandals that have hit the college and various press releases they have made. I've also been keeping a close eye on some of the old guard that used to run this outfit and what they are up to and I've certainly not been impressed. It's made me realise that this organization really are a bunch of self important toffs, who believe it is their god given right to control the rest of us. They are so far removed from day to day general practice it's seems like they are a bunch of archaic old cronies pontificating what life is like for us younger generation without ever spoken to those they make generalizations about. Anyway to cut a long story short I've moved abroad and got my qualifications for my new jurisdiction and by the way this year will be the first year I REFUSE to pay the exorbitant £400 odd pounds fee and YET I certainly will not abrogate my qualification!! YES I SHALL STILL USE MY MRCGP QUALIFICATION WITH PRIDE BECAUSE BY GEORGE IVE CERTAINLY PAID OVER THE ODDS FOR IT OVER THE YEARS........the RCGP hadn't had the stomach to fight for us all these years, let's see of it has the stomach to fight against us if we choose to keep it's letters after our name!!!
