'The GMC treats BME doctors differently and harshly'


Agree, but they don't care - why? 1. they have the support of the brexit voting xenophobes 2. they are not accountable so they can do what they want and still kreep their jobs, pensions etc the best way to get back is to spread this case and give doctors from overseas other choices i.e. Auz, singapore, canada and even the US which at the least are pro-legitimate immigration. when the 'establishment' find they can't get anyone to do the dogsbody job of actually seeing patients they will get the message and questions will be asked. unfortunately we are feeding the system by being so desperate to be doctors in the UK when there are so many other better options out there. when you read the comments from the public it is also clear they want their 'own' so why not let them have it? I'm sick of reading 'immigant doctor can't speak english' etc etc it's clear that race is any issue in this case as the GMC has put it - they have to yield to public confidence i.e. foreign doctors or foreign looking doctors are bad but proving that there is bias is something else - remember the RCGP anyone? the learning lesson here is that foreign doctors should not be looking to come to the UK as you are not welcome by the public and the medical institutions - go somewhere else where you will be wanted, respected and treated fairly and equally. sorry to say the above as it will upset a lot of people but I've seen prejudice and experienced it myself and that's after being born here and studying medicine here.
