GMC to continue appealing FTP decisions until legislation is changed


All for one ? | GP Partner/Principal03 Jul 2018 5:33pm hopefully, the appeal will look into these matters there are wider issues, - professionals being judged on technical matters with a lay jury - the 'expertise' of expert witnesses - the GMC defaulting to the decision made in criminal courts without thinking through the wider implications i.e. if you are always going to side on the decision made by the courts then why do we need the GMC at all? It then defaults to a rubber stamping mechanism of 'you were convicted in court, we don't need to see the evidence or balance the ramifications so we will automatically strike you off' Massey is paid 250k a year to lead - if he is just going to abdicate his duties he should go.
