It would need one hell of a golden handshake......



I hear that my old practice is now 3 doctors down, and all available appointments are gone within 4 minutes of the phone lines opening up. They are really struggling, and I feel sad for them.

I could return to work, to help - I still have the knowledge and skills, so why not?

It is quite simple - I would need to do 2 sessions a week for around 2 months before I would make any money, so there is no point.

I would need to enrol on a returners course for General Practice to update my skills ££££

I would need to re-register with the GMC ££££

I would need to pay for Medical Indemnity insurance ££££

I would have to embark on a process of revalidation, putting together a portfolio of skills, assessments etc and that would cost me ££££

No, unless the authorities got rid of protocols, guidelines, revalidation, micromanagement, inspections, the GMC, the CQC, Health Education England, Clinical Commissioning Groups and all the palaver of modern medical practice in the UK, I am going to stay at home.

No bargepole is long enough..........

The entire process of medical appraisal and revalidation do seems to quite difficult and burdensome to the already tiring and tight schedule of doctors but approaching it tactfully can make it easy.

It is nice that you are writing again . I have always enjoyed reading your posts but I invariable feel so powerless at the stupidity that still comes from 'our elected representatives' and the DoH. Any advice?

It is unfortunate that the fees for some of those qualifications are so high.

That sounds so hard, I never knew that G.P's would have to pay out so much, especially when (most of them anyway) will only be helping people. You sound a really nice person, I stumbled upon your blog a month ago and have taken to you!! :).

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.

Allow me to ask why would you need to do all that just to get back into practice? Am sure doing all that would really not be necessary indeed the protocols and re-validation are not necessary. All they would need to establish is that during your working days you always upheld your code of conduct.
