GMC calls for doctors' reflections to be legally protected


The GMC do not ask for reflections to be made available to them, but if they are, they will cherry pick them for any phrase which can be taken out of context to suggest lack of fitness to practice. And if you do not provide evidence of your reflections, you will be found to be lacking in insight and guilty of failure to remediate. Guilty if you do, guilty if you don't. The basic problem here is that the GMC do not conduct a fair and impartial investigation: they merely look for any scrap of information which could be used to convince the MPTS of someone's guilt based on the balance of probabilities. As the prosecution, they are not in the least bit interested in justice, merely finding someone guilty to justify their own existence.
