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


Agreed with above - it happened. I hope that there will indeed be an open and transparent review with ALL findings made available to the medical fraternity. I also would expect that in keeping with present activity people and committees who were involved will be named, if serious enough then suspension of thei role should be standard until the investigation ahs been carried out completely . It would be unlikley that such investigation would find them entirely correct in any actions /communcations taken and this would result in them being tarnished no matter how innocent. Common sense is required and the GMC needs to be made answerable - crerdible organiosations who could do this would be 1) a group of politicians 2) The Daily Mail.
