NHS England's top GP resigns following Pulse comments


Una Coales, 6 August 2018, 8.47: (GMC Roundtable talks) "pushed for no anonymity for doctors if using social media publicly as it may lend itself to trolling without consequences" I was 'trolled' on this PULSE platform by "Monty", who has since changed his anonymous PULSE name to "PrimaryPrimate". I stopped contributing to PULSE after the personal attacks that I received from "Monty". In his posts as "PrimaryPrimate" it is stated that as a doctor he is still doing Locums and has been elected as a Tory Councillor. I am all for Free Speech and for freedom to talk about the good, bad and ugly, but personal abuse, undignified and unprofessional behaviours are given greater freedom when done so under anonymity. I realise this is an on-going debate.
