GMC fails in case against surgeon exonerated of manslaughter


I often sit with my head in hands as I consider it all. The GMC appears to have taken it upon itself to act like a Modern Day Charles Lynch (credited with the term Lynching) whose express purpose now includes providing an emollient to an upset family and retribution sans blood and gore, labelled as justice. As a profession we are utterly spineless and our permissive attitude towards are own abuse (which we often portray as a martyr-like nobility) means that we in effect invite this kind of treatment.
