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


I have to say it and risk getting flamed, but so many of the latest generation of GPs, as a result of being swamped with the RCGP's obsession with naval-gazing and psychobabble, couldn't deal with a really sick person, other than perhaps recognising that they WERE sick and then dialling 999. To some extent understandable with the less exposure to sick people and decision making in the role of FY1 & FY2. Sad really, and i don't blame our younger colleagues; I blame the RCGP. Mind you, we might be good at signing sky-diving forms and checking old people's boilers.
