Headline

GMC to ask why BME doctors face more complaints than white colleagues

Comment

This is nothing new. It is the public perception of foreign looking doctors albeit trained in UK, a racial bias. I have seen where BME Drs had been singled out despite issues with all doctors if the practice and there are cases where family complained but no further action taken by the family despite of seriousness of the case...,forget about institutional racism, there general racism though practiced subtly....I wonder if all complaints reaching the GP practice are centrally lodged (away from the insensitive GMC) locally and reviewed by say the LMC committee nod may find the content of the complaint will be if equal meAsure between the indigenous vs BME
