GMC Fitness to Practice Hearing on Dr Wakefield, Professors Murch and Walker-Smith
Conclusion to finding of facts: GMC, London 28 January, 2 pm

CryShame is again organising a demonstration of support for the doctors outside the GMC building on the day, and we urge you to join us. This will be a landmark day in the long and exhausting fight to get justice for our children. Anyone attending the hearing over the last few years will be in little doubt of what the outcome should be. Each of the doctors presented a robust defence backed by solid documented fact to indicate that none of the allegations constitutes anything approaching professional misconduct. On the contrary, the GMC hearing has served to emphasise the dedication, care and courage of these three men in the face of a political trial that was triggered by a journalist and manipulated by a desperate system.
Please be there to support the doctors. Current expectations are that the decision will be announced at 2 pm on the 28th Jan, but do refer to the CryShame website (www.cryshame.co.uk) where news will be posted of any possible changes.
(The GMC can change hearing dates with 24 hours notice)
You can also show your support by joining our facebook group Click here for link
Hope to see you there.
The GMC Click here for map is at Regent's Place, 350 Euston Road, London NW1 3JN, between Euston and Great Portland St. tube stations – about 5 mins walk from Euston and 3 mins from Gt Portland St

Background to the fitness to practice hearing
After a protracted hearing which ran the course of over two years ‘The ‘Finding on Facts’ on the case against Dr Wakefield and Professors Murch and Walker-Smith is expected to be announced by the GMC in London on Thursday 28th January, 2010, at the beginning of the afternoon session. At this stage, the announcement will relate to which, if any, of the allegations against the doctors are considered to be upheld by factual evidence presented to the adjudicating panel.
Possible outcomes range from exoneration on all counts, to all allegations being upheld, with the possibility of a decision in which some are upheld and some are dismissed.
Following the ‘Finding on Facts’, there will be additional days set aside, should they be needed, in which consideration is given to (a) the seriousness or otherwise of any particular findings and (b) any sanctions deemed appropriate given the decisions taken in (a).

I have found the witch hunt in the media since the GMC investigation very disconcerting to say the least and felt compelled to write about it

Thank you for this support niplag. Nicely written too. It is indeed a witch hunt. The function of the GMC - as I understood it in the past - is to protect the public from doctors who are doing harm - e.g. Shipman. In this instance, not a single parent complained of Dr Wakefield doing harm. Just the opposite in fact. The parents of these children seen by Dr Wakefield have nothing but praise for him - he HELPED their children!! As you may have noticed, the parents turned out in full force to support him last Thursday and very much made their feelings clear. So this Punch and Judy show had nothing to do with protecting the public, 'THEY' were after the man - Andrew Wakefield.
Welcome to the forum by the way!

Excellent - the health department medic was so unconvincing it was quite funny - you could see the interviewer was totally unimpressed with how he had firmly closed the door on any debate about vaccines being a contributing factor.

Funny isn't it, they still claim not to know what is behind the increase in autism - but the one thing they do know, is that it has nothing to do with vaccines so that is a topic that is closed.

The proverbial can of worms, methinks. Best look everywhere else, so as not to come up with anything incriminating. How long can this charade go on, it's become absurd.
