#IamHadiza: GPs share stories of when it could have been them


I had been, until 2016, a GMC case examiner and supervisor for 25 years, becoming that at their invitation. That January I went to a mandatory training day run by 3 non clinicians. The first question was 'how has the GMC changed in the past 5 years?' and the majority response was that it had become more punitive. We were told 'we work for patients; yes, we work with doctors but we work for patients' On being questioned about long waits, breakdowns and suicides the response was reiterated. I sent in my resignation; no response or thanks, just a letter 6 weeks later terminating my current supervision case.
