The DT today has an article about a GP, Dr Richard Scott of Bethesda Medical Practice, being in front of the GMC for evangelising, and proselytising his fundy christian beliefs to a vulnerable depressed patient. As I read it I had a feeling of deja vu. In fact this is the same GP who has been up in front of the beak before, for exactly the same offence, less than six months ago. 

Reading the two stories it is clear they relate to two different instances so Dr Scott has deliberately carried on abusing his position to try and impose his religion on his patients despite having been told in no uncertain terms by the GMC to lay off. 

I expect Dr Scott will try and defend himself in part by trying to assume the role of religious victim and martyr but his conduct is a crystal clear, and repeated breach of good practice guide para 33.

Time to put on the black cap I think.
