Should doctors convicted of sexual offences be automatically banned? – Halsbury’s Law Exchange

“The Telegraph and the Daily Mail are using convicted doctors as ammunition in their latest assault on the Human Rights Act. ‘Dozens of convicted sex offenders are working as doctors, it has emerged’, fulminates The Telegraph. ‘At least 31 men are practising as GPs, consultants and surgeons despite having convictions for assaulting women, possessing child pornography or soliciting prostitutes’. And it’s all the fault of the bête noire – human rights. ‘The General Medical Council (GMC) said it was unable to ban medics for being on the sex offenders’ register as it has been advised that such a move would not be compatible with human rights legislation’.”

“In the context of determining whether to disqualify a company director for misconduct in the direction of an insolvent company the use of the expression ‘exceptional circumstances’ was better avoided.
