Hi, its Tom Rolley for Graduate Medicine.
Just checking in with the good news.
I received an email this morning that the petition that I spoke about last week has been successful.
Now, for those who are unaware, this petition covered a rule whereby any complaints, whether founded or unfounded, would be registered on the a doctor's record.
So the petition target was 15,000.
I'm not sure exactly how they got.
Actually I do...
It's 16,640 signatories to it, and if you click the link it will say "Congratulations. Medical board reverses policy."
So this is clearly a win for common sense, and also respecting the work and the challenges we face as GPs. So, very excited.
If you did sign the petition, thank you.
It's an interesting experience of the world that we live in, that when we combine signatures or work together, we actually get results.
Alright, that's all I got for today.
Very happy that common sense has prevailed, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
