'GMC processes may add to the distress and risk doctors face'


The big problem of the GMC and the MPTS is not only in the length of proceedings, but it does not make sense in its essence: many of these cases are initiated by false or trivial accusations. The GMC builds a castle of paper on anything, leading the verdict of "guilty" for the doctor investigated, no matter. There is not a single honest step in what is done. Certainly there must be supervision on doctors; but on what concerning the work it could be done by a disciplinary committee for the scientific part and by the normal Justice if any crime is committed.The MPTS exists only to support itself and those who are working in it, with the connivance of the GMC that increases its power through terror on doctors. It is a unique situation in the world and it is unacceptable.
