RCGP reviewing whether MRCGP exam is ‘fit for purpose’


Well if non-medical professionals can practice but those who marginally failed CSA can't, what can possibly be considered as a reasonable purpose achieved by the system? How is the fitness for purpose going to be assessed we'll probably never find out. Hasn't RCGP quite clearly already failed it's purpose by all methods of measurement? Don't we already know what the result of this assessment is going to be? Oh well, it really looks like nobody is genuinely touched by any common sense. Failing MRCGP by 5 marks makes you incompetent to practice as a GP while non-medical professionals are sought after in order to put things right. Is this not in itself a system failure?
