GPs will be required to collect annual patient feedback under GMC plans


Very difficult to actually register and complete this consultation. Asks questions about your name email sexuality and religion before you can comment. The questions are either ambiguous or leading, and it’s clear that the decisions are already made and that the ‘consultation’ is nothing of the kind. When I made negative comments about appraisal in the Umbrella consultation I was intimidated by emails from the GMC asking me if they could video my (confidential) appraisal to learn more about me. I’m expecting the same treatment for daring to question this latest assault It will take hours to collate, upload, reflect and make any sense of the dogs dinner of feedback that they are demanding. At least the current offering is standardised, and measurable Hopefully the BMA will send them another strongly worded letter...
