GMC to launch 'very serious' review into complaints against BME doctors


Hey-hey, here we go again. Ear-shattering, attention-grabbing headlines that leads nowhere. Here's the reason and double jeopardy for over-representation of BME in the hamster wheel of the GMC. 1. Sad as it may seem, the population is quick to complain about an ethnic/foreign doctor as being non-caucasian is perceived as a 'sign'of incompetence/inferiority. 2. The GMC, wanting to always give a scalp in an appeasement to the public find the isolated, 'unconnected' BME doctor to be an easy prey. I hope Charlie can now save use the cost of the proposed review elsewhere.
