GPs 'practise in fear' due to GMC, LMCs say


I have been lucky enough to survive 30 years in medicine without such a complaint. I am well aware that this is more due to luck than judgement and my heart goes out to all those affected. The current policy has, however, affected me severely. I have decided to quit while I am ahead as I am aware that the chances of remaining complaint free are diminishing all the time. I have therefore left medicine at the age of 54 and the NHS have lost 11 years of my services. I am quite sure that I am not alone.
