Doctors practise in 'a climate of fear' after Bawa-Garba case, says GMC review chair


Vinci Ho | GP Partner/Principal17 Sep 2018 9:39pm it's an interesting perspective GMC vs MPTS the MPTS seems to have the support of the state indicated by the ruling that the GMC will have the power to challenge the MPTS removed. also reading in between the lines from the comments on PULSE it appears that doctors are more supportive of the MPTS. So it appears that the GMC has alienated itself - but for what purpose? in addition - is the GMC actually fulfilling its aim of protecting patients and restoring confidence - where is their evidence on this? I have not seen any patient groups come out in support of the GMC - if anything the GMC has been criticised by the public eg Nick Ross' letter. I think the GMC needs to be challenged on their decision making and questioned more carefully as to why they are making the decisions they are making and on what evidence they are making those decisions.
