Lisa Blakemore-Brown, The British Psychological Society, Dr Rita Pal and the GMC

Sorry to be late with this story, but I’m back in the chair now after spending a couple of weeks in Northumberland on the north east coast of England (which is where I come from – but even I never get used to the weather that we are treated to from time to time!)

I’m sure regular readers of pharma blogs may well know the story of Dr Lisa Blakemore-Brown – I’ve written about her case here, here and here. So has another blogger – a British doctor named Rita Pal who writes for the NHS Exposed blog and she linked to a document on the Furious Seasons website (as I did) which is transcript of Blakemore-Brown’s British Psychological Society hearing. The problem is that the BPS wanted to keep the transcript private (Blakemore-Brown did not).

It seems that Dr Pal has lost her job over this and now the General Medical Council, which regulates doctors in the UK, is investigating her.

This one is getting complicated so I suggest you go over to Furious Seasons now, where you’ll find a great article explaining everything.

[I wonder who you can complain to if you’re not happy with the GMC itself?]
