GMC to introduce 'emotional resilience' training after finding 28 doctors under investigation committed suicide


With all due respect to Dr Coles, this isn't about you. It is a damning report which shows how 28 of our colleagues WHO WERE ILL took the desperate decision to end their lives in the most devastating way possible. Doctors with alcohol/ drug / mental illness must be dealt with by a separate GMC route with a view to pastoral care rather than punishment. There but for the grace of God go any of us.
