Coroner writes to NHS after investigation ‘lost sight GP was a human being’


Tragic. The regulators just don't get it. Doctors ARE patients. We have the same frailties as everyone else. If you cut us we bleed. If you threaten us, we are afraid. The big untold story here is multiple jeopardy. I know of no other group of people who can be subject to so many different inquisitions from so many groups that can threaten your career. GMC, NHSE, PAG, Ombudsman, CQC, no-win no-fee lawyers to name but a few. This can drag on for years so it's hardly surprising that harm results. No-one trusts the regulators any more. We need reform.
