In yet another controversy for the NHS, a new report suggests that more than two thirds of foreign doctors registered with the organization have not been checked regarding their language skills or competency.
The survey carried out by Pulse newspaper contacted more than a 100 NHS trusts across Britain of which only 20 were able to provide details about tests on clinical competence.
AdvertisementAccording to the data, less than 20 percent of the doctors underwent the tests with many trusts defending themselves by saying that such a requirement was made compulsory only this year.
The Pulse went on to claim that as many as 1500 doctors across the country were allowed to work without undergoing proper tests, raising fears of a repeat of the David Grey case who was killed by overdose of a drug and the German doctor admitted that he was confused about the drug.
