"Remedy have obtained documents through a Freedom of Information (FOI) disclosure revealing previously undisclosed motives behind the MMC reforms of 2007. In short it appears that MMC was something of a foil by the powers that be to usher in the Subconsultant grade and change irrevocably the career prospects of all UK trainees......"
Excellent ferreting Remedy. I would strongly advise anyone interested in medical politics to read through the documents that the DoH have finally been forced to release.
In my opinion the rank dishonesty shown by the DoH throughout this whole sorry affair reveals why the health service will never flourish with these bullies at the helm. If only those in the positions of power were willing to cooperate and work with people in order to improve the systems that are in place, if only. The current regime would prefer to cynically spin the facts, deliberately hide their real motives and smuggle their corrupt reform agenda in via the back door. Shame on them.
