Dr Zorro has a post “GMC jailbird.”
He is of the opinion that appointing Penny Mellor to the Child Protection Working Party of the GMC was an act of stupidity rather than malice.
Black Cats, of course, believe it is Conspiracy.
Witches, of course, believe it is Creep.
The creep of political correctness run amok!
There is also the possibility that there was some back-scratching going on as it does in high places.
Networking is a much more acceptable term than back-scratching.
But it is often the same thing.
The Witch Doctor recollects that, over her lifetime, she has been compelled to send considerable sums of her money to the GMC in order to keep them solvent and, more than that, to refurbish their premises to a high standard and pay the expenses of many of her peers as they travel up and down the country to any meetings that they think will earn them their reward in Medical Heaven.
And many more costly activities besides.
The money The Witch Doctor pays is compulsory and is called “annual fees.”
In view of this, therefore, The Witch Doctor thinks that the GMC should be accountable to her.
She wants to know how it came to be that Penny Mellor became a member of that committee.
Did Ms Mellor herself make an overture to one or more persons in the GMC?
Or did one or more persons in the GMC put her name forward for consideration?
If so, who was it?
And who agreed to it?
Was back-scratching going on?
Please be transparent, Mr Dickson and Professor Rubin!
You are accountable to witches, doctors and patients.
And The Witch Doctor is all three.
