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


So the GMC relies almost entirely on an 'independent review' chaired by Sir Keith Pearson who himself has been involved in revalidation process since its inception. So not an independent review then. One of the boys saying it as the GMC would like it to be. Reflection, that half arsed scribble we are required to complete after each and every educative session. Don't get me wrong, as a professional, I would often read an article or attend a conference and come away with something new that I would put into practice. That's what being a doctor is all about, learn and change. It then becomes a requirement to write it down and it becomes a stupidity not to say a medicolegal minefield. Charlie fall on your sword please. You are not worth your salary if you ever were. Fortunately I no longer pay it.
