|........................||Dear GMC please take
a note of this. The consultants are manipulating the system of ODTS (Overseas
Doctors Training Scheme). There are so many doctors in UK trying to get
into ophthalmology even then why do consultants call overseas doctors for
sho posts in Ophthalmology. There are a couple of posts in Ophthalmology
in the North that I know of where interviews will be/were conducted for
sho posts but the jobs will/has gone to overseas doctors and that too without
plab on the basis of odts. What the hell is going on and why. Why is not
anyone speaking up. I think it is high time that the ROYAL COLLEGE OF OPHTHALMOLOGISTS/GMC
should take a notice of this.

|It might interest you to know that
the President of the Royal College was in Pakistan recently, recruiting
for doctors to fill posts in the UK.
-They already know-
Because they know, that when MMC
occurs, and 50% of the SHO posts will disappear, that someone will need
to continue the service provision, and see all those thousands of patients
who attend clinic, and eye casualty.
Why does everyone turn this into
a race issue when it is clearly not? local grads come from a variety of
races and backgrounds so how can u call it racist? Basic non-arguement.
In my below post I commented that
90% of the applicants for our SHO rotation are from overseas. Overall the
SHOs appointed over the last few years have been roughly equally divided
between overseas and local graduates, the SPRs around 3/4 local graduates.
