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


96 deaths in 10 years!! That is 96 too many. If these doctors were curmudgeons swindling the system, they would scarper or resign rather than snuff themselves out. If they had mental health issues or financial issues that pushed them over the edge they needed help and not persecution. The coleagues who bring shame on the profession by real crimes get away sometimes, or do not end their lives, and throw their families into turmoil forever, by stepping into that dark, lonely night on their own. We should hand our heads in shame that it has come to this. We would be the laughi8ng stock of the world and the general public, if they knew that we pay 90 million in subs every year to an organisation, that instead of ensuring all doctors are good , persecutes many this way.
