Closed Shop For Doctors

Recommended Posts

Why? When workers in every other sector have to compete head-on with competition from foreign workers, sectors that have seen 10,000's if not 100,000's of redundancies over the last few years, a lot fo them forced redundancies.

Sooner or later I think that the economic fallout will create a situation where not making this sort of move will be politically untenable, but that is not the point, why are some sectors getting spcial treatment as it were.

They can aways go back home and Blair can give us the type of service we are paying for with all the tax he keeps taking from us.

English jobs for english workers i say.

Lawyers have a closed market and most MP's are lawyers, try stopping that one if you can.

Trouble is, in my opinon, much of the medical profession has far too high a status - certainly in terms of salary. While I appreciate that that surgeons and specialists are highly skilled, the problem lies with General Practice. Do you really need three As in science 'A' levels to be a GP? I've never been told anything by a GP that I couldn't have worked out for myself, in the library or on the internet. It would seem to me that the job of a GP could be done just as well by a nurse, on a third of the salary. Just think of the savings to the NHS if GPs were replaced with a new brand of nurse, who had GP training? Such a nurse would obviously have to be intelligent, but he or she wouldn't need to be super highly qualified. And like GPs, if the something is beyond them, they send their patient to a specialist.

Hang about aren't we constantly told the NHS would collapse without the hordes of foreign medics???

Lets see the same priciple applied to ALL jobs please.

3 A's at a level? I thought these came with packets of cereal these days?

IMHO it is far more important that a doctor be of the right temperament rather than super brainy.

Also why are we paying them so much? Surely they go into it as a vocation than a money making venture?

Vocation? Basically, in the UK, they make a decision to do science 'A' levels at 16. Get the grades at 18 and that's enough.

Anyway, seems unreasonable to require GPs to be at the top of academic pile.
