Sign this petition to end India’s war on women

The Indian government has set up a special commission to prepare an action plan to protect girls and women from sexual violence. Let’s send a flood of messages to the Justice Verma Committee urging the government to come up with an ambitious plan to end India’s war on women.

You can either

  1. sign the petition.  Click here to sign the petition now (takes less than 30 seconds to do)
  2. or send an email – use the tools below to write in now!     Click here to send an email now
  3. or even better, do both!

The more personal our messages the better. Here are some pointers on what to say:

  • The government must urgently strengthen legislation and enforcement against sexual violence.
  • Laws alone will be insufficient, the government should also launch a massive public education programme to shift the shameful attitudes that permit and promote violence against women.
  • This is the last straw. This brutal, venal, global war on women must stop and it should be every politician’s top priority.
If you’re interested, you may find this article by Ruchira Gupta (President of the Charity Apna Aap that helps women in unfortunate situations) of her take on what social change needs to take place to stop this sort of thing from happening.  I thought it made great sense.

How IT ALL STARTED
WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
WHO ARE WE FOR?

Bradford VTS was created by Dr. Ramesh Mehay, a Programme Director for Bradford GP Training Scheme back in 2001. Over the years, it has seen many permutations.  At the time, there were very few resources for GP trainees and their trainers so Bradford decided to create one FOR EVERYONE. 

So, we see Bradford VTS as  the INDEPENDENT vocational training scheme website providing a wealth of free medical resources for GP trainees, their trainers and TPDs everywhere and anywhere.  We also welcome other health professionals – as we know the site is used by both those qualified and in training – such as Associate Physicians, ANPs, Medical & Nursing Students. 

Our fundamental belief is to openly and freely share knowledge to help learn and develop with each other.  Feel free to use the information – as long as it is not for a commercial purpose.   

We have a wealth of downloadable resources and we also welcome copyright-free educational material from all our users to help build our rich resource (send to bradfordvts@gmail.com).

Our sections on (medical) COMMUNICATION SKILLS and (medical) TEACHING & LEARNING are perhaps the best and most comprehensive on the world wide web (see white-on-black menu header section on the homepage).

WHAT's HAPPENING?

Here are some updates planned over the next 6 months

  1. Updating the SCA exam pages with cases and videos.
  2. Clinical Specialty areas all being updated with current guidance and easy to understand diagrams and flow charts.
  3. Videos being created for some of the pages for those of you who prefer to watch than read.
  4. We’ve got some bradfordvts helpers to contribute and develop their own pages or areas of interest.  If you would like to be a bradfordvts helper, email me rameshmehay@googlemail.com
  5. We provide all of this for free. But it costs us money to run.  If you could kindly donate something, that would be great.  We do all of this for you.   Please hit the button below. xxx
