Until DZ retirement his registration with the GMC was very much in the background. The money got taken, unnoticed, from his account on a regular basis but that was about it. He does remember back in the 90s when, due to an error in the GMC itself his direct debit was cancelled, by them and the fee not paid. In their usual style when they discovered their own error their response was to write to me aggressively and rudely threatening erasure if I didn't pay up. As if it was my fault. Arrogant pigs!
So for the entire duration of his career, DZ had no idea what his GMC number was. No-one ever asked for it. It was not in his memory.
So when he started doing agency work he was a little surprised to find the number of times he was required to put his GMC number on various forms, including prescription forms and various other records.
A month ago I mentioned another line I've been wanting to use for some time. The opportunity hasn't arisen yet, but it's only a matter of time.
The disembodied voice in this clip I think sounds a lot like the GMC would sound, if it had a voice.
