Licensure Format 50 Year Fixed Tenure, without any Annual Hassles or Complications Annual (at the sole discretion of the GMC)
Basic Licensure Cost Basic Licensure : Less than 50 Pence (50p) Per Month ( Payable as a one-off Fee for the whole 50 Year Tenure) One Year of Basic General Medical Council Licensure (and Registration) costs more than the whole 50 Year Basic MLC Offering.
Licensure Fee Increments Permanently Fixed from the day you join Not Permanently Fixed from the day you join
Scope of Clinical Practise Multiple Grey Areas within Orthodox Conventional Clinical Medicine which are not exclusive to GMC Licensed Doctors (i.e those duties which are performed by those who do not have GMC Licensure e.g Nurses, Pharmacists, Therapists, Technicians etc) ; PLUS Self-Care, Self-Help, Empowerment , Alternative Medicine , Traditional Medicine , Non- Surgical Cosmetic Procedures, Anti-Ageing , Mind Therapies, Energy Healing , Bodywork , Natural Fertility Support, Advanced Wellness Interventions , OTC Remedies etc Orthodox Conventional Clinical Medicine Only

Certificate of Good Standing A 50 Year Certificate is Automatically Issued to each Licentiate upon Formal MLC Certification The GMC has Full Control of it's Registrant's Certificate of Good Standing ; and usually refuses to issue it directly to them.
Disciplinary Procedures All Formal MLC Complaints are officially forwarded directly to the Licentiates Themselves , for onward consideration and Possible Transmission to their Appropriate Professional Indemnity Providers (Insurers). The MLC will never Suspend or Erase or Strike Off . There are no Fanciful Public Show Trials either The GMC prouldy seems to formidably display a relatively unquenchable thirst for Excruciatingly Humiliating Public Disciplinary Hearings ; together with Draconian Suspension and Erasure Powers
Damage (Crisis) Control , When Things Go Wrong The Medical Licensing Commission always helps it's Licentiates to get back on their feet again - and Fly . . . The General Medical Council almost always seems to publicly rejoice whenever Precious Medical Careers sadly seem to be Helplessly Sinking down the drain . . .
Statutory Name Medical Licensing Commission General Medical Council
Professional Title of Registrants Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) Consultant General Medical Council (GMC) Registered Medical Practitioner
Exclusive Professional Prefix for Registrants Medical Licensing Commission Licentiates can either apply for their very own unique MLC Prefix Title - or lawfully use their original Doctor Title if they so wish , provided that they do not describe themselves as being a General Medical Council (GMC) Registered Medical Practitioner None. The GMC does not hold any Exclusive Statutory Rights to the title of Doctor.
Private Clinic Opportunities Medical Licensing Commission Licentiates can swiftly set up their very own Private Clinics immediately their MLC License , Professional Indemnity Insurance and Immigration Formalities (if necessary) are in place. The General Medical Council Establishment often prevents it's Registrants from running their very own Private Clinics ; especially those who are relatively young in the Medical Profession.

GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL | GMC | UK | FTP | BIAS | XENOPHOBIA | DISCRIMINATION | RACISM | CORRUPTION

Whenever a White UK Doctor does Something Unique , he is Institutionally Labelled a Genius , a Sage and a Saint.

On the Other Hand , whenever a Black UK Doctor does Something Unique , he is Institutionally Labelled a Quack , a Fantasist , a Lunatic and an Imbecile ; irrespective of any Overwhelming Evidence to the Contrary.

If a White British Doctor , like the Utterly Shameless Medical Manslaughterer (& Former GMC President / Chairman) Lord Professor Sir Dr Mr Graeme Robertson Dawson Catto MD DSc FRCP , had lawfully achieved even up to half of what I have personally done so far , then (perhaps) Good Old Jolly Mrs Windsor would have (by now) Gleefully Abdicated her (Blinged-Up) National Throne , in Total Deference to him and all that he duly stands for.

Let it therefore be publicly known that I (Joseph Chikelue Obi) am Exceedingly Proud of My (Highly Controversial) Past ; and will incessantly continue to Boldly Fight against the Racist General Medical Council (Come What May) , right until the Very Damn Day that it Ultimately Ceases to Exist .

Abstract

Objectives : To evaluate whether country of medical qualification is associated with “higher impact” decisions at different stages of the UK General Medical Council’s (GMC’s) “fitness to practise” process after allowing for other characteristics of doctors and inquiries.

Design : Retrospective cohort study.

Setting : Medical practice in the United Kingdom.

Participants : 7526 inquiries to the GMC concerning 6954 doctors.

Main Outcome Measures : Proportion of inquiries referred for further investigation at initial triage by the GMC, proportion of inquiries investigated that were subsequently referred for adjudication, and proportion of inquiries resulting in doctors being erased or suspended from the medical register; relative odds of higher impact decisions, by country of qualification, adjusted for doctors’ sex, years since primary medical qualification, medical specialty, source and type of inquiry, and nature of allegations.

Results : Of 7526 inquiries, 4702 concerned doctors who qualified in the UK, 624 concerned doctors who qualified elsewhere in the European Union (EU), and 2190 concerned doctors who qualified outside the EU. At the initial triage, 30% (n=1398) of inquiries concerning doctors who qualified in the UK had a high impact decision, compared with 43% (267) for doctors who qualified elsewhere in the EU and 46% (998) for those who qualified outside the EU. The adjusted relative odds of an inquiry being referred for further investigation were 1.67 (95% confidence interval 1.28 to 2.17) for doctors who qualified elsewhere in the EU and 1.61 (1.38 to 1.88) for those who qualified outside the EU, compared with doctors who qualified in the UK. At the investigation stage, 5% (228) of inquiries received concerning UK qualified doctors were referred for adjudication, compared with 10% for EU (63) or non-EU (221) qualified doctors. The adjusted relative odds of referral for adjudication were 2.14 (1.46 to 3.16) for doctors who qualified elsewhere in the EU and 1.68 (1.31 to 2.16) for those who qualified outside the EU. At the adjudication stage, 1% (69) of inquiries received concerning UK qualified doctors led to erasure or suspension, compared with 4% (24) for doctors who qualified elsewhere in the EU and 3% (71) for non-EU qualified doctors. The adjusted relative odds of erasure or suspension were 2.16 (1.22 to 3.80) for doctors who qualified elsewhere in the EU and 1.48 (1.00 to 2.19) for those who qualified outside the EU.

Conclusions : Inquiries to the GMC concerning doctors qualified outside the UK are more likely to be associated with higher impact decisions at each stage of the fitness to practice process. These associations were not explained by measured inquiry related and doctor related characteristics, but residual confounding cannot be excluded.

Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi Finally Gets His Independent Statutory Medical Regulatory Tribunal . . .

* * *

Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi remains (minimally) satisfied with the current rate of progress which is slowly being made towards the establishment of a Fully Independent Medical Doctors Tribunal in the United Kingdom.

As the Chief Advocate for Medical Regulatory Fairness and (Concurrent) Leader of Opposition against the General Medical Council , Joseph Chikelue Obi firmly believes that there is still a whole lot of work which seriously needs to be done by all parties concerned ; most especially by the present GMC Leadership.

That being said , in the very same vein , Professor Obi would also like to publicly congratulate the GMC Abolition Movement for formidably extracting a Huge Amount of Concessions in relation to the Level of Independence (and Accountability) of the Aforementioned Statutory Tribunal ; albeit in (Highly) Diluted Form.

Our Next Great Step in the Roadmap to Medical Regulation will be to Scientifically Test the True Independence of such a (GMC-Funded) Tribunal , starting with the (Highly Publicized , Never-Ending) Medical Manslaughter Quagmire of Graeme Robertson Dawson Catto - a Former Executive President (Chairman) of the General Medical Council (who has been consistently aided and abetted , of course , by an Utterly Shameless Racist Network of Equally Culpable Senior GMC Medical Members , many of whom are still holding GMC Practising Licenses to date - and should therefore also be comprehensively probed accordingly).

Afterall ,(Global Economic Recession Notwithstanding), the General Medical Council (GMC) is most certainly NOT above the Law ; and must therefore never ever be indefinitely allowed to Totalitarianly Act as (Ardent) Medical School Inspector , (Pinnacle) Medical Curriculum Enforcer, Exclusive PLAB Examiner , Statutory Medical Registrar , Internal Registration Appellate Body , Eternal Performance Appraiser , In-House Performance Appellate Body , Unquestionable Chief Revalidator, Ultimate Discrete Inquiries Commissioner , Evangelically Eager Witch-Hunter , Part-Time Criminal Investigator , On-Demand Professional Policeman , Wannabe Qasi-Crown Prosecutor , Unlicensed Supreme Court Judge , Infallible Clinical Misconduct Jury , Bountiful Tribunal Paymaster , (Blood-Thirstily) Inept Political Executioner and Bottomless Xenophobic Graveyard ; all in the very same Obtuse Regulatory Litter.

Professor Joseph Chikelue Obi , hereby Authoritatively Affirms the 5 Great Diktats of Art Based Medicine :

* There is No Such Thing as Science Based Medicine in any Basic Statutory Definition of Orthodox Clinical Medicine ; anywhere in the World .

* Orthodox Clinical Medicine is Predominantly an Art , Not a Science.

* Over 75% of Orthodox Clinical Medicine is Not Evidence Based.

* Over 99% of Orthodox Clinical Medicine is Not Science Based.

* If Science Based Medicine is currently being given such Undue Eminence ; then it is only right and proper that Art Based Medicine should equally be given Appropriate Prominence too.
