I ask this question, because so many comments on here are based upon a GP not following guidelines and often demonstrating low or zero knowledge on this subject.
I briefly discussed this with a relative of mine in the north of England who is heavily involved in medical staff training.
It appears that many GP's specialise, perhaps women's health, pain relief, etc. There appears to be no central structure from CQC, etc detailing how much CPD should be done in things such as gastrointestinal health, etc. Thereafter GP's appear to only do CPD in their specialism. This is not great if your assigned GP specials in women's health and you are a man, etc, etc.
Any thoughts or comments?
