'PCT not helping me stay secure'
Dr Brian Keighley has mounted a vigorous defence of the GMC against criticism from the Government, the public and doctors. Dr Keighley, a GP in Balfron, Stirlingshire and GMC member, argues in this month's British Journal of General Practice that the fact 'all three seem dissatisfied' with the council 'may mean it is actually doing something right'.
He also defends the GMC's decision to refer a ruling by its own professional conduct committee to the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence the new super-regulator. He said: 'It must be right if the GMC identifies a decision that appears wrong: it should bring it to the attention of the CHRE.'
