To measure the effectiveness of this campaign, we will use your GMC Number to check whether you were included in one of the PLAB2 groups who received a leaflet. We are using your GMC number in this way based on our legitimate interest in measuring the campaign’s effectiveness.

What do doctors think of the workshop?

I liked getting information first hand because I had never worked in the UK as a doctor before.Watching videos of other doctors' experiences was really helpful, as was getting to meet other people in a similar situation, and the materials I got to take home. Everything was good from beginning to end.

Dr Crystal Ozoka

Senior House Officer from Nigeria 

I felt a difference in my confidence level with patients before and after I attended the workshop.

Dr Abhishek Ray

Senior House Officer from India 

The workshop taught me how to tackle ethical and social situations that are different in the UK, and destigmatised asking for help if I need it.

Dr Mariam Mourad

Paediatric Registrar from Egypt
