Niall Dickson: 'We want to make our procedures as low stress as we can'


Adding hypocrisy to hypocrisy The problem for the stress of investigated dotors does not really rely on their fragility but on the very source of it. The existence of a tribunal for doctors is the real point to be reviewed. This horrific institution does exist only in UK and British linked countries; there is no correspondence in any other country where the medical matters are treated by simple disciplinary boards in the most simple manner and with real independent mind. The way the UK tribunal is moving is simply against every reasonable law, violating the elementary human rights. The whole process is based on a preconstituted agenda and theories, completimg forgetful of the evidence. Each passage is self referring; each “independent” opinionist is in reality fully dependant on previous opinions. Nobody is looking for facts nor for reality. The sentence is well written far before it is pronounced. The whole procedure is unlawul and abusive. I wonder for how long doctors may be able to bear such stalinist board with its kgb methodology.
