82% of GMC investigations lead to no sanction, official figures reveal

Comment

I went into medicine thinking the GMC was an organisation made up of my 'peers' (which it was when founded in the 19th century, however it has since morphed into a terror and intimidation organisation controlled by an ex-journalist (but he did once publish a nursing journal so thats alright then). So it is no surprise now that we now being controlled by non-doctors (apart from the token one or two) who dont understand what doctors do, that the GMC has sunk so low and it has so much blood on its 'charitable' hands as amazingly it is viewed as a charity. I have never been investigated and have left medicine and the register 'voluntarily as I did not want to be controlled by these vindictive idiots. It was the ill thought through and overly burocratic revalidation system which did it for me finally. This system makes a mockery of doctors rights as we have to comply with all the officious unneccesary xxxx they set up. The human rights issues like forcibly vaccinating all doctors before they are allowed to revalisldate should be illegal. Anyway these bullies can only get worse as no one seems interesed in controlling their powers which are only growing.
