Headline

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

Comment

The problem is that for anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves targeted by the GMC it's a real David vs Goliath fight. They are too well resourced and have too much influence for there to be any scope for justice or proper scrutiny as more often than not it is one persons word against another. When you think of how many slightly odd people who come through your rooms, the odds of a malicious allegation against you are disturbingly high and yet there is a worrying lack of due process in what is after all a quasi judicial process that goes on behind closed doors in the name of 'patient safety'. The GMC have blood on their hands now and have created a monster which is not going away any time soon.
