Ethnicity Survey

12 posts in this topic

The GMC has sent me a questionnaire about ethnicity.apparently to demonstrate commitment to diversity & equality under Race Relations Act. I thought they already hold this information. Has anybody else received the questionnaire?

Yes I have received the questionnaire today. Guess indirect way of assimilating data which could be used at an appropraite time.

If you applied under MTAS then they will already have this information on you.

There are people who would not have registered with MTAS - career grade doctors and those who were already specialist registrars and Foundation Year 2 trainees

I did register with MTAS and even if we dont, at various points eg when we sit PLAB etc we have already provided ethnicity info, but yes I have become extremely paranoid & find myself looking over my shoulder all the time. May be this is a sort of verification of the data they hold on doctors.

Where was the GMC when the DoH was outlining some random immigration dates to decide who could and could not apply....... >:( >:( >:( >:(

Is the GMC responding to the BAPIO case which found that the actions against IMGs were not in keeping with the Race relations Act....

Is this not all a bit too late..........atleast for some of us............. >:( >:(

No but they released it on the internet to anyone that wanted to view it, so the GMC should have looked then! :lol:

What I meant was that you will already have given this information to one organisation, so giving it to another similar one shouldn't make too much difference.

I got one too...not sure if they ever sent me one before as I tend to be allergic to ethnicity forms (I don't fit nicely into one tick box).

I think it's about time the GMC realised how ethnically diverse we are-perhaps it will lead to a shift in the way they treat IMG's when they realise how much money we pay them!

(yes, I know how naive that sounds-I'm trying optomism out) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I got one too. When I tried to ring them there was no answer... I wanted to ask them if they plan to gather the additional data in the diversity categories - like religion and sexuality...

Is there any randomisation as to who gets this survey? no one in my trust has got it yet.

No. They want everyone's details. Knowledge is power.
