Dr Joseph Chikelue Obi ¦ " Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) Practising Certificates undoubtedly have Utility and Value . . . (*Archived Content)
Speaking in response to Headline News that the General Medical Council will soon begin to rake in an (estimated) additional US$25 Million Per Annum from Retired GMC-Registered Medical Practitioners , Professor Obi said:
" The General Medical Council has long been making it abundantly clear that it greedily wants to charge Retired UK Medical Practitioners huge amounts of cash ; simply for the monumentally arrogant pleasure of them being loosely associated with that very same GMC.
When I publicly blew the whistle about this matter , very many (many) years ago , I was summarily declared an Anarchist ; and unceremoniously banished to the Professional Fringes.
Now that the penny has finally dropped (for almost everyone to gloriously see and behold) , the Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) is currently being inundated with huge numbers of enquiries from the very same Retired UK Doctors who previously pronounced me an unrepentant Rabble-Rouser.
I therefore publicly advise our Distinguished Senior Medical Citizens to (for heaven's sake) please stop moaning and start moving ; should they ever wish to lawfully possess Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) Registration which has both Lifelong Utility and Long Term Value - rather than nostalgically chasing after a posh little piece of GMC Paper which obviously seems to have lots (and lots and lots) of Short Term Value but relatively little Retirement Utility.
