Most current religions are patriarchal and in keeping with that tradition the General Medical Council never had a woman President. In 151 years since it was formed medical profession was unable to do it. So insecure is the medical man in his own ability to cope with female authority.
My impression gained from my own experiences at the General Medical Council is that there is no respect for women having the authority in their work.
There has been relentless pursuit to discredit the whistle blowers ie those who are not subservient to the higher authority (men's values) whatever the cost in terms of human lives. So, whistle blowers are like Satan and the General Medical Council is like God. Really, simple to start with until we realize that some whistle blowers are women. Why is it that Satan could not be a woman? Well, presumably because in male psyche a woman is really there to love men, was created by God and God does not make mistakes.
