The White Coat March



The White Coat march took to the streets today. A wave of white coats, surgical scrubs and stethoscopes, lined the streets of London to protest again the hideous imposed governmental changes; not only changing eductaion, but also reducing the number of much needed doctors. It is expected that this march will change the direction of 'Modernising Medical Careers', and the politicians will let the experts in their own specialties train the future consultant generation.

Good for you, Michelle. You are very dedicated to your cause -- even if I did have to turn sideways to see. I admire you greatly, and the situation with the UK doctors is an abomination. I've been following the stories in the press.
Unfortunately, what is happening there is pretty universal, it seems to me, and much is quite reminiscent of the situation in Canada.
Please carry on as you have been doing. Privilege to know you, even via this route.

Brilliant stuff Michelle. The psychiatrist perspective from the couch position.

David, jmb, Owen, Ian and Wat - thanks kindly for your comments. The entire MTAS system seems to be madness - perhaps it should be on the couch! Michelle
