Ban lay press from GMC

I agree with what Dr Kevin Pearce said (Letters, June 9) about how a career can easily be disgraced by accusations before the GMC.

I was before the GMC recently. The fact I have had a 46-year blameless career meant nothing as they accepted a case for hearing that had been thrown out twice. Although I was totally vindicated, the lay press had a free hand to print the false allegations made against me.

The GMC should be hearing far fewer cases and the lay press should be banned from all such hearings.
