Headline

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

Comment

@ 8.36 I respectfully disagree..... It is about all those doctors who, under GMC investigation, have felt so desperate that they have considered ending their lives. Those who committed suicide cannot speak for themselves. Una survived and I applaud her for speaking out, perhaps in behalf of some of those who did not. It would be interesting to know how many if these doctors had mental health/drug/alcohol problems before the GMC investigation and in how many the investigation induced it? There is a parallel with whistleblowing here. The stress of the situation caused mental health difficulties and the person concerned is therefore dismissed as being unwell. Which comes first?
