GMC launches internal review of suicides among doctors facing fitness-to-practise investigations


The GMC prodcedure I went through was abusive, intrusive, overly drawn-out and incompetent. Whilst accepting it was right for the GMC to investigate the process pushed me over the edge. The response of the GMC was to add the allegation of unfit to practice due to health as well, and to insist on two independent psychiatric reviews. Neither of the psychiatrists even asked about suicidal ideation let alone anything more significant.
