    I've let him know. I'll post it on FB too, but thought I'd try here first, so I don't get inundated with begging PMs and have to disappoint lots of people. ;)

    Could you please email Sarah at office@doctormyhill.co.uk

    and let her know.

    She might want to nominate a proxy, otherwise just email GMC back and so you can't go and they will drop down the waiting list.

    Hope this is ok

    Statement on Behalf of Dr Sarah Myhill Concerning GMC Hearing of 29 April


    LONDON, April 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Statement on behalf of Dr Sarah Myhill:

    On Thursday 8th April 2010, Dr Sarah Myhill, a private GP, was summoned to a GMC Hearing on Monday 12th April so that her license to practise medicine could be suspended whilst anonymous allegations against her were investigated. The GMC gave her one working day to respond.

    When challenged, the GMC re-arranged the Hearing for 29th April to start at 09.30 am. It is scheduled to last for approximately 1 1/2 hours. At Dr Myhill's specific request, the Hearing is to be made open to the public. Mr John R Macdonald QC of New Square Chambers, Lincoln 's Inn, London, will be accompanying Dr Myhill to the Hearing.

    With the GMC unable to accommodate the numerous requests for seats at the Hearing, Dr Myhill's patients, their families and friends will be organising a demonstration of support outside the GMC offices at 1.30pm. The GMC are scheduled to release their Hearing decision at 2.00 pm.

    Dr Myhill believes that she has been targeted by the GMC because of her interest in allergy and nutritional medicine which she uses to treat a wide range of conditions from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME), Gulf War Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, to Organophosphate poisoning and Aerotoxic Syndrome, amongst others.

    Dr Myhill has been subjected to GMC scrutiny since 2001, during which time she has faced six Fitness to Practice Hearings. All these were cancelled by the GMC with no case to answer. To our knowledge, no patient has ever complained to the GMC about Dr Myhill and we know of no patient that has been harmed nor put at risk.

    During this time the GMC have spent GBP136,692.12 on external solicitors' fees and disbursements in addition to their own internal costs, estimated to be in excess of GBP500,000.

    On 12th August 2009 Dr Myhill met with Jackie Smith, Head of Fitness to Practise Investigations at the GMC. Jackie Smith has not signed the minutes of that meeting and has not met with John Macdonald QC, Dr Myhill's legal representative.

    The GMC have formulated no allegations against Dr Myhill. But on the basis of one complaint concerning the use of vitamin B12 injections to a patient and a second anonymous complaint about her website the GMC have decided there is "a potential risk to public safety"

    If Dr Myhill is suspended on April 29th many of her patients will be directly damaged by the GMC's action. See a sample of patient support here:

    Thanks for that Polly, I'm still feeling gutted after hearing the news yesterday, feel even more sad watching this. Words fail me about the action taken by the GMC, just more evidence of our rights to treatment as we choose being not only ignored but trampled on, they really don't care. She's got such af fight on now for the next 18 month unless she appeals.

    I was there protesting Dr Myhill's innocence.

    To all those who couldn't make it (especially the internationals), I will say that Dr Myhill seemed to be in exceptionally good spirits before the verdict. I think that is down in large part to the support she has received from far and wide. From patients and non-patients alike. I think she found it extremely humbling, as you can see in her speech where she is almost reduced to tears at one point.

    A big thank you to all those who wrote in.
