    for the query about exemption to take up plab and mrcs 1.

    i too finished dnb orthopaedics in 2003 and had to take up plab and i finished mrcs 1 & 2 now working in UK. there are many more like u and me here in uk who have completed their dnb. i really dont think they consider surgical specialities (DNB) for exemption, of course yes for anaesthesia. the national board has to take steps and co-ordinate with the royal college of surgeons and general medical council.
