[quote=BBC]The GMC has announced that it has suspended its recognition of the degrees of one Luton-based college and is investigating the status of four others...


...These "squatter schools" have to be recognised by the GMC to allow their graduates to take its PLAB test, which then allows them to practise in the NHS. There are now doubts about the validity of degrees awarded by St Christopher's College of Medicine in Luton, which currently has 400 medical students...


...As a result of these revelations the General Medical Council announced that it had suspended its recognition of degrees awarded by St Christopher's while it investigates the college's accreditation in Senegal.
"We have immediately begun our own investigation, which centres on the possibility that private, UK-based, medical colleges have been inappropriately claiming that their courses would lead to the awarding of a medical qualification from a university," a spokeswoman said.
"We have suspended our acceptance of the relevant medical degrees. "We have also asked the NHS Counter Fraud Service to assist us, and have amended the information on our website."
