After Dr Bawa-Garba – is the GMC fit for purpose?

Comment

Professional self regulation is the role the GMC is meant to perform, however it has turned into a dictatorial regime - tormenting and destroying the lives of many innocent and hard working doctors - with sometimes simply scraps of accusations enough to damn the doctor. Guilty until proven innocent is the mantra performed out through drawn out investigations and tortuously slow clearance when it is as been proven there is no evidence of wrong doing. Financial and professional manslaughter is committed on a daily basis by the GMC panels - leaving doctors on the brink - with the sad figures quoted above of those who fell off the edge. There is no self regulation when C Massey - a politically appointed stooge sits on the top of the ivory tower that has been created. The GMC is completely out of touch with the ground, and hence is shocked by support for Dr BG. Stop doctors paying for their own torment - as the GMC is no longer peer led regulation. Either sack the entire senior structure and put in place self regulation in the way it was intended, or the DOH needs to fund the GMC forthwith.
