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

Comment

The Independent expert psychiatrists do not examine you as a patient, but you they are asked to give a medical report. In the process, you do not have patient-rights, s you are not their patient. The expert assessors and witnesses brought by the GMC are protected by the GMC.They can do any number of basic/serious mistakes but they will not be investigated for their fitness. If you complain, you will be branded 'wexatious'.
