Re: Margaret McCartney: We must look at the whole impact of revalidation
Those of a mature disposition know that revalidation is severely flawed in terms of: lack of proven benefit, waste of resources, flawed processes and doctors’ morale. But it is lack of that maturity and self confidence which means the profession puts up with it. Retiring or emigrating is one way out.
Has the BMA not got the balls to say enough is enough and recommend the process stops by recommending non compliance? Too many doctors do not realise the political history of the development of the process* and give it too much respect; after all the BMA supported it so are not best place to lead the revolt. If not who or what body will?
Don’t hold your breath, the establishment bodies stitched you up.
