400 potential new GPs trapped in MRCGP limbo as GP leaders call for reform


GP is not a specialty its let's accept it ... A gatekeepers job to hospital.... You have to make decisions whether a person needs specialist or needs to go home, for that you need experience which these doctors had by training for three years here ..... Not exams, no exam prepares you to make a right decision..... It's just a way for RCGP to prove to themselves they are no less then other specialties.... And earn money.... Allowing MAP route to these GP trainees would not only help our dwindling GP workforce but also prevent the training of these doctors going waste.......every other specialty has option of CEGPR, so why not in GP.... Espy when we are facing such crisis of doctors....
