British GP unable to work in NHS as GMC says laws are 'not fit for purpose'

Comment

South African doctors, especially from my Medical School and era have excellent training and experience which means nothing to the RCGP.... 20 years experience, 5 in SA and 16 UK: occupational medicine, prison, psych, substance misuse inpatient and community, forensics police, army, rehabilitation....all the hard and soft skills needed to take real care of people in GP land....blocked and goal posts constantly changed....now the only solution would be full gp training...but I cant get fy2 equivalence signed off without taking a junior hospital post to tick a few boxes ie insertion of a urinary catheter after being trusted to treat gunshots and stab chests on MY OWN...in Hillbrow hospital ...beggars belief after 16 years here I'm sick to death of the place, the attitude to "foreign" doctors despite solid British heritage due to accent has become untenable since brexit...screamed at by an elderly man in public in Wales as "being a racist from a country ...everybody knows is racist"... and at my age looking to relocate again!!!!
