Submission to the Medical Council on the Draft Regulations relating to Professional Competence - Nov 2010

In the submission to the Medical Council on draft regulations relating to Professional Competence the IMO again raised the issues of:

  • Dual registration on the specialist and trainee specialist register
  • Requirements for doctors outside the state providing services to patients within the state to be registered and maintain Professional Competence
  • Only physicians on the Specialist Register should be allowed practice independently in their speciality

The IMO also recommended that there should be:

  • Specific provisions for retired doctors
  • Adequate funding for Professional Competence schemes
  • Remediation arrangements for practitioners who fail to meet the requirements
  • A Specific scheme for Community health doctors
  • Medical practitioners must have a basic grasp of the lingua franca.
