During a period of poor health I reluctantly asked the GMC to remove my name from the GMC List. After just over 2 years my health had improved and I was able to have my name reinstated on the GMC List . However , unknown to me and without my approval or consent my name had been removed from the GP Performers List for England. I now find that it is very difficult / almost impossible to have my name put back on the GP Performers List for England . I would be happy to explain why this is so to anyone interested. I have spoken to other doctors in a similar position who , after a period "off sick" seek to return to practice but they find the hurdles to be too great !! Might The Kings Fund look into this situation and try to find a "fast track" for experienced GPs to Return to Practice?
