    Here is another story of the GMC registered doctor harming patients.

    It took 14 years to bring justice to the victims.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...entenced-for-carrying-out-needless-operations




    The harm that has been caused by GET by the PACE authors has many more victims than this case. With GET people have been forced into it taking it. The ME psychiatrists have done much worse but they are still walking around free.

    When will the GMC start investigating the PACE authors and striking them off.

    PACE trial authors - your time will come!!


    Timeline
    1998: Paterson is hired as a consultant surgeon at the Heart of England NHS trust, despite being previously suspended from Good Hope hospital. He also sees private patients at Spire Healthcare hospitals of Little Aston and Parkway.

    2003: He is investigated because of concerns about cleavage-sparing mastectomies. Recommendations are not followed through.

    2007: Breast surgeon Hemant Ingle is appointed and with others raises concerns. Further investigations are carried out and Paterson is told to stop performing cleavage-sparing mastectomies. Mark Goldman, the chief executive of the Heart of England NHS trust, informs Spire that it is investigating Paterson.

    2008: Two GPs complain about Paterson’s treatment of a patient, saying he gave misleading information about pathology reports, overtreated patients and disregarded the multidisciplinary team meeting process. Another report is also critical.

    2009: A Spire Parkway patient makes a formal complaint about Paterson. No action is taken. Heart of England NHS trust recalls 12 patients who have had cleavage-sparing mastectomies. West Midlands Cancer Intelligence Unit submits two further reports.

    2010: The GMC tells Spire Parkway executives about a complaint from an NHS patient.

    2011: Parkway are informed that Paterson carried out a cleavage-sparing mastectomy in 2009 after being told to stop in January 2008. A month later, the GMC informed Spire about another patient complaint. A recall of all Paterson’s patients begins.

    Paterson is suspended by the NHS in May 2011 but continues to perform breast surgery for Spire until 31 May and general surgery until 8 June 2011. He is paid until November 2012.

    2017: Ian Paterson is found guilty of 17 counts of wounding with intent, relating to nine women and one man. He is also convicted of three further wounding charges.

    Hypocrisy from Dr Phil Hammond who is protecting Esther Crawley and the PACE trial authors.

    Fails to see his own part in the PACE trial scandal.

    It would be interesting to research this case further and see how the PACE psychiatrists can be held to account.

    Concerns were first raised in 2003 and he was still operating in 2011... so many patients put at risk.

    Look how long it took to stop the world's biggest mass murderer, Dr Harold Shipman.

    The British Medical Profession is a bloody *cult*, it's behaves like a religious con game cult mixed with a medieval Guild system, because that is exactly what it IS.

    As I've said before, the Establishment always protects itself regardless of the cost, crime or stupidity, and the "professional classes", such as doctors are major part of it, and thus major part of the damn problems society suffers under.

    Doctors must be PHYSICIANS FIRST AND FOREMOST, not a guild who secretly ensure they are "protected".
    It's not just the PACE Trial scumbags who should be jailed, but the B.M.A. itself should be forcibly broken up and severe legal actions and punishments hammered across it.

    Just bad part of Human Nature at work, it is fact, proven, repeated fact throughout history, that "groups" almost always descend further and further into corruption, evade responsibility and cause greater and greater harm, without someone booting them hard up their arses or extremely stringent and external, "clean" oversight
    Look at the Vatican and many other churches crimes, or our governments, and the Financial Crisis of 2008, as to what has gone wrong and as to why.

    Because our entire systems became so corrupt and unscrupulous, it let those psych SCUM run rampant.
    Genocide, mass murder, child abuse, child abduction, false imprisonment, manslaughter, murder various "bodily harms" and other crimes should be smashed down on them.
    and absolutely do NOT let them even try to use "but we were trying to help!" as an excuse because it doesn't bloody fly and it's always used as an excuse, or "following orders/conventional wisdom"
    They CHOSE to deny facts and bulldoze over innocent people in dire need of harm.
    No damn bloody difference between them and Medieval witch hunters or the Eugenics swine.

    Oh good. I look forward to them taking measures to stop members of the BPS cult from abusing ME sufferers in a timely manner then.
