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


I recently had a relapse of my bipolar disorder when I became hypomanic.I was admitted to hospital and made a good recovery.I was reported to the GMC and after 6 months they are still doing initial investigations into my fitness to practice.The GMC have reported me to the Performance Advisory Group to see if I can remain on the Performers' List and thus be allowed to continue working.I don't think that the GMC or NHS England have learnt from this sad case.
