Medical chiefs say they cannot automatically ban convicted doctors because it may breach their human rights



More than 750 GPs, surgeons and other doctors have kept their jobs despite being found guilty of offences including taking indecent images of children, drug trafficking and fraud.
Medical chiefs have said they cannot automatically ban convicted doctors because it may breach their human rights.
Campaigners reacted angrily to the disclosures on Sunday night. Roger Goss, the co-director of Patient Concern, said: “Human rights should not allow doctors to get away with still practising after being convicted of these crimes. There are shocking convictions for violence and doctors having images of children. The fact they have not been struck off is an outrage.”
The General Medical Council (GMC) released the number of criminal records held by practising doctors in response to a Freedom of Information request. It showed 761 doctors were practising in October this year, despite accumulating 856 convictions between them.

What about the rights of the Patient? Oh, I forgot. They don't matter, do they.

I always assumed getting prescription only stuff to those without 'valid' reason for prescription was a perk of the job that some endulge in. :hahano:
