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


You are told to go and get your own support (and there is not a lot out there) and then left to it....its very easy to see how suicide risk could arise and go undetected with the tragic consequences that have occurred. The exercise of the GMC investigative function is deeply troubling - you should be innocent until proved guilty but their whole approach tends to be the other way round.
