Sex offender doctors can't be banned in case it breaches human rights

Post by Olympicana_Reloaded on 25.09.12 10:30

The GMC said it could not impose an automatic ban on doctors convicted of sex offences as this would risk breaching human rights legislation.

Dozens of convicted sex offenders are working as doctors, it has emerged.

At least 31 men are practising as GPs, consultants and surgeons despite having convictions for assaulting women, possessing child pornography or soliciting prostitutes.

Their patients are unaware of their criminal histories.

The General Medical Council said it was unable to ban medics for being on the sex offenders’ register as it had been advised that such a move would not be compatible with human rights legislation.

The doctors include one who was convicted of sexually assaulting two colleagues and one who downloaded child sex stories and read them on his home computer while working with children as a GP.

One anaesthetist carried on working after a three-month suspension for squeezing the breast of a junior colleague.

Of the 31, four have committed sexual assaults, four have convictions for child pornography offences, two were guilty of voyeurism or exposure offences and 21 solicited prostitutes or were caught kerb-crawling, according to figures obtained by the Daily Mail.

Ten of the offenders were able to treat patients, including children, without any sanctions.

Niall Dickson, the GMC’s chief executive, said: “Cases of doctors convicted of sexual assault or child pornography offences are very rare and in the vast majority of these cases these doctors are struck off the medical register so they cannot practise medicine in the UK.”

But a spokesman for the Council said the decision on whether to strike off a doctor was taken by an independent panel of experts and the GMC could not appeal against it.

The regulator was looking to automatically ban doctors who have been convicted of sexual offences but did not currently have the power to do so, he added.

Individual hospitals can, however, impose their own sanctions on doctors.

Tory MP Stephen Dorrell, who chairs the health select committee, argued that patients had a right to know if they were being treated by doctors who were convicted sex offenders.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
