'We are being regulated to death'


Nial Dickinson needs to realise that the current process of referring to fitness to practice panel of GMC can be abused as a mean of bullying. Clearly, bullying can lead to death . Reading the comments( nearly 100 comments) in the main article on the subject , the process of handling a referral case appears to be flawed. Disrespectful, presumed guilty and disdainful are the main themes. Even the Police cannot behave in these ways when they are at the stage of receiving and investigating a crime.Yes,the whistleblowing can be true as well as false allegation .GMC must serve for both fairness and justice. This is no country like China , Russia or North Korea . There is a reason why Themis , the Greek Goddess , is blindfolded for objectivity. Not sure GMC had displayed an understanding of that?
