'Bulk of doctors' back revalidation processes, says GMC chief


When a government representatives are prepared to lie to this extent, it's surely time to call for resignations? A recent Facebook survey was overwhelmingly against revalidation. It's caused and still causing massive harm to our profession, being responsible for a number of early retirements, a recruitment crisis and tying up doctors in an exhausting treadmill of box filling instead of patient care. All this can easily be quantified but the BMA have taken their eye off the ball. We should be calling for a public investigation into how this nonsense came about and examining the probity of its defenders who are no doubt making plenty of money from the wretched thing.
