Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi berates UK Medical Doctors over Huge GMC Revalidation Costs - Challenges them to vote with their Wallets . . .
Chief Regulator of the Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) , Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi , has firmly advised Embattled UK Doctors to stop grumbling and start acting.
Speaking in response to Headline News that the General Medical Council will soon begin to rake in an (estimated) additional US$100 Million Per Annum from GMC-Registered Medical Practitioners , Professor Obi said:
" To be fair , the General Medical Council has long been making it abundantly clear that it comprehensively wants to charge UK Medical Practitioners huge amounts of cash ; simply for the monumentally arrogant pleasure of them being loosely associated with that very same GMC.
When I publicly blew the whistle about this matter , very many (many) years ago , I was summarily declared an Anarchist ; and unceremoniously banished to the Professional Fringes.
Now that the penny has finally (and thankfully) dropped (for almost everyone to gloriously see and behold) , the Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) is currently being inundated with huge numbers of enquiries from the very same UK Doctors who previously pronounced me an unrepentant Rabble-Rouser.
I therefore publicly advise our Distinguished Medical Citizens to (for heaven's sake) please stop moaning and start moving ; should they ever wish to lawfully possess Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) Registration which has both Lifelong Utility and Long Term Value - rather than nostalgically chasing after a posh little piece of GMC Paper which obviously seems to have lots (and lots and lots) of Short Term Value but relatively little Retirement Utility.
