GPs, MPs, and BS: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Today I read another great piece from Dr Edwin Kruys (here) about revalidation of doctors, specifically GPs. I won’t repeat his points as he has made them very eloquently but I will add a few of my own. The public don’t seem to be clamouring for revalidation of doctors. They don’t seem to be particularly worried about their GPs taking advantage of the system. They do, however, seem to be worried about politicians’ incompetence and rorting.

politicians will fly…

So, if, as Edwin writes, only 1.5% of GPs are doing the wrong thing, and the public is not too concerned about this, and the watchmen – the politicians and their ilk – are performing at much lower standards of probity, how is revalidation going to help?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes – Who watches the watchmen? You do. Our valued patients at Partridge Street General Practice will tell us if we’re not meeting their expectations.
