Organisation & HRM Assignment


Task: Read the short case and answer all the 4 questions

MMC: Money down the drain or failed HRM?

‘Modernising Modical Career'(MMC) is an online programme for postgraduate medical training introduced in the UK from 2005 onwards. IT was devised and implemented by a think tank at the central policy offices of the National Health Service(NHS). For many years there have been concerns about the Uk medical workforce,in particular the postgraduate medical training system. The most prominent of these centred on the poor training and indifferent career prospects experienced by some doctors at Senior House Officer(SHO) level and by many of those in Staff Grade and Associate Specialist(SAS) posts(online

Therefore, the Modernising Medical Career(MMC) programme of work was established in 2003 to addresss these difficulties. In this line, MMC was intended to ‘improve patient care by improving medical education with a transparent and efficient career path for doctors’.More specifically, ‘Modernising Medical Career’ is an online job application system for junior doctors fill in a website based questionnaire and application form. Also, completion of the questionnaire and application form gives a point score; and from this decisons are made anonymously by a centrally based HR and jobs offers system.

The system,however,has ben dogged by criticism within and outside the medical profession. As it quickly became apparent that the database itself was not secure,this has led to controversy and allegations made by students that their applications had been tampered with or altered. There was no guarantee either of the integrity of the form completion process and in may cases, forms that had been fully filled in were incomplete when they were downloaded by prospective employers. Also, the application process has had technical problems and was criticised over the weighting and marking of the applications, with one London training school calling it “unfair and ineffective” in resigning from the process.

Also, the House of Commons Health Select Committee published a report into the Government’s handling of the Modernising Medical Careers(MMC)  reforms on 8 May 2008. The report was highly critical of the way in which the reforms were managed,highlighting failings in leadership,governance and policy development. The inquiry exposed serious problems with the management of MMC reforms, and particularly the introduction of the Medical Training application Service(MTAS). The Committtee criticised the Chief Medical Officer(CMO) for a lack of leadership and medical profession for the lack off a coherent voice. MPs also found co-ordination between the Department of Health(DH) and the Home Office;’inadequate’ in handling attempts to restrict medical migration.

To the worst, as it was perceived sufficiently poorly within the medical profession,its implementation was ultimately boycotted by senior doctors around the UK.
