RCGP reviewing whether MRCGP exam is ‘fit for purpose’


Its very unfair that a doctor who has spent 5 years studying medicine and then worked as trainee in NHS at different level for 5 + years, who has showed continues progress and marked competent to work as GP on work place based assessment, is deemed unsafe just based on doctor getting just 1 mark less in acting based CSA exam.The doctor is denied oppertunity to work in trained speciality labelled unsafe while physician assosiates with no medical degree and just 2 years training and no MRCGP can work in general practice.Is patient safety not compromised with PA' s working in general practice?
