At the heart of general practice since 1960

A nickel-and -dime practice

A website has been launched to draw attention to the plight of GPs who have been suspended on ‘frivolous' grounds.

In the long term, the site www.justicefordoctors.com aims to employ a full-time lawyer to advise doctors who feel they have been unfairly suspended or been the victim of vexatious complaints.

The site was initially set up to publicise the case of Dr Harish Doshi, a GP in Leigh-on-Sea who was suspended nearly a year ago. He faces an appeal with Southend PCT in December.

Paul Rogers, campaign spokesman, said the website was in response to a ‘zero tolerance' approach from PCTs. ‘There's no justice,' he said. ‘If a patient writes in you are judged guilty and that's it.'

Southend PCT insisted Dr Doshi's suspension was a ‘neutral act' but refused to comment on it further.
