Why nurse prescribing is complicating GPs' lives
So the GMC is appealing to the High Court against the verdict of its own professional conduct committee in the case involving consultant pathologist Dr David Bee, who was cleared of serious professional misconduct over a postmortem of one of Harold Shipman's victims.
What hope for the Hyde GPs?
How can the GMC claim to be impartial and looked upon as a reasonable judicial process if it can decide its own professional conduct committee is incapable of making the right decision?
The GMC is trying to distract attention from its own shortcomings by persecuting a retired doctor who has been tried and acquitted. It is a step too far and we need to do something.
Maybe Professor Mike Pringle's prediction is right when he says the GMC fears being disbanded. Janet Smith's final report may damage the GMC fatally and most doctors
may not mourn that demise if the GMC reacts like this.
