GMC successful in High Court bid to strike off junior doctor


A truly distressing and shocking case. We all work in extremely pressured environments with multiple demands being made on us. Seeing 50 patients a day (10 minute appointments) with responsibility for reviewing & actioning results, reading clinical correspondence, taking phone calls, supervision of juniors, signing prescriptions - all with poor staffing/support levels is beyond comprehension. The thought of being criminally culpable in such conditions is a terrifying thought. When is the profession going to take a stand.
