GMC (General Medical Council) AND WOMEN DOCTORS

GMC denies it is sexist in anyway. Watch this interview about denial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAdA38oqYuU&feature=related Women doctors are more mad according to GMC panelist: http://apt.rcpsych.org/cgi/reprint/11/5/330.pdf NCAS had twice as many women doctors referred for madness compared to male doctors. It also perpetuates the myth of women being more mad: http://www.workingforhealthni.gov.uk/doh_mental_health_and_ill_health_in_doctors.pdf Are we to believe that we cannot take women seriously in NHS or at GMC? Click here to see what WHO (World Health Organisation) says about mental illness rates (they say same rates for men and women unlike GMC people) and NCAS: http://www.who.int/mental_health/prevention/genderwomen/en/ Here is another publication from one of GMC Fitness to Practice Panelists who is also a Forensic Psychiatrist : http://www.who.int/mental_health/prevention/genderwomen/en/ I can see why GMC would want her to sit on my panel. She thinks we, doctors avoid mental health treatment and that doctors are more mad than the rest of the population and especially women doctors. This is also very convenient for any government that does not like medical dissenters and whistle blowers. Well done GMC. You know how to pick up the panel members for the right attitude. GMC does not like investigation (well, it requires thinking and effort and money). This is what GMC investigator heard when I spoke with him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNjyLyq2C8U It is so much more convenient to declare a doctor mad than to take her seriously. And of course, as many of us have suspected GMC is on another planet. A gas planet?
