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


I am staggered that as many as 96 doctors have died whilst waiting for fitness to practice hearings.This is a real tragedy in the true sense.If the GMC is responsible ,in any way, for even one of these deaths then they should be held to account.Can you imagine the media uproar if doctors ,by their actions,we're responsible for so many deaths? Doctors ,when they are Ill ,deserve to be treated as patients in exactly the same way as anyone else. This is a story which would have major coverage in the media if it involved any other group in society.
