  • ...about time the GMC got its act together then.... Thanks Moggies - another little gem in the tapestry of life.... x

  • The GMC is a very very old fashioned outfit, who despite their modern looking website are quite the opposite, patients and staff alike come off very badly if they do the right thing! MaryF

  • The only time the GMC takes action is when one consultant dares to complain that another consultant has diagnosed a condition they missed

    Then the good Consultant finds themselves the victim of false accusations and a witchunt

    Dr Peatfield, Dr Skinner, Dr Myhill to name just a few

  • I agree, reallyfedup. It is so disgusting. They Should be ashamed of themselves, but they are obviously Not !

  • I've just had a rant about this on a post higher up. Agree they have a lot to answer for! (Registrar unable to answer questions)

  • I've recently had experience of the GMC and was totally overwhelmed by their concern NOT!!

    If a person makes serious allegations of incompetence against GPs that can be backed up then wouldn't you expect them to take it seriously? I've sent them a second missive, just to rattle their cage.

    Medical mafia.

  • Its amazing that when the GMC want to charge someone on fitness to practice rules they use patients, but otherwise would never dream of listening to them!!

  • Thanks all for your comments - maybe some sweeping changes will be seen and the GMC will be dragged - kicking and screaming - into the modern world. Like ALL medical bodies they seem to be a law unto themselves.
