The news [see BBC web-link below] on October 15th 2010 that Dr Sarah
Myhill is to be suspended from medical practice for a year is utterly
disgraceful and simply beggars belief. Dr Myhill properly submitted her
mitochondrial ME/CFS work to peer-review and is an outstanding and
conscientious medical professional. If this General Medical Council
(GMC) ruling is allowed to stand and not successfully challenged by
judicial review then de-facto state-directed medicine has arrived in the UK.
Yesterday was a black day for ME/CFS patients, a black day for clinical
freedom, a black day for genuine medical science and a black day for the
country. It is shameful.
Progressive science-based forces must not be disheartened by such a
travesty. We must re-group, fight back and stand up for one of the best
and most outstanding doctors in UK general practice.
