How Do Other Businesses Do It, Then..?

As noted by David Vance on Twitter, the usual suspects are whinging again:

Some organisations ensure there is support for newly arrived doctors. “Some doctors may only need a week but others really need longer,” said one clinical director.

“It is unreasonable to expect someone to travel halfway across the world, land in a different social and clinical environment, social mores and language and not expect there to be challenges. We try to put ourselves in their shoes.”

Here’s a thought: this doesn’t just happen in the NHS, so why not look at how big companies do it? What support they feel they need to give foreign workers?

Because if the answer’s ‘None’, that might mean you are – as usual – whinging about an invented problem. One that may well be of your own making…

The GMC chief executive, Charlie Massey, said: “Quite often doctors who are BAME may be less likely to get open and honest and timely feedback, which means that little things could escalate into bigger things which may make them more likely to be referred to us.”

I wonder if the reason they don’t get that is because everyone who might give it to them is terrified of being accused of racism?

    Stop stealing doctors from the third world, it is racist to deny people of Africa and elsewhere who paid to have their doctors trained then we steal them, that is theft and real racism.

    Other businesses processes include their ability to interact so they make it easier. Government bodies, because they never have to pay for failure, don’t and just take them because of their country of origin, colour and a certificate. A certificate we quite commonly find to be worthless.
