Headline

GMC successful in High Court bid to strike off junior doctor

Comment

The standard used to make such decisions against doctors is the bar of "public confidence in the profession". The problem with this bar is its subjective and nebulous-therein lies the problem. Moreover, we have to go by what a reasonable public would want not populist views. Lastly, the GMC is trying to make us see that they understand the pressures we all work in, however this decision confirms that what they "say" may not be what they "walk".Worse still, it shows they lack insight. Now, that is very concerning!
