The General Medical Council (GMC) refused to warn other countries about the incompetent surgeon who had botched the liposuction procedure he carried out on Colin Hendry's wife, Denise, the Telegraph reports. The surgeon, Dr Aniansson, is still working as a doctor, in Sweden, where there have also been complaints about him, apparently.
This is a further example of the dangerous partisanship of the GMC: it routinely favours protecting the reputations of negligent doctors and shows precious little concern for the safety of patients. I have written about this before.
The GMC should be abolished.
