Comment from Professor John Walker-Smith on Erasure from UK Medical Register

Posted May 24 2010 12:00am

General Medical Council Commenting on the GMC decision of 24 May 2010, Professor John Walker-Smith said:

“I am devastated that the GMC has decided to erase me from the medical register.  At each stage of the GMC’s investigation and hearing I have put forward strong evidence contesting the central allegations against me. It is deeply disappointing that the GMC has chosen to impose a sanction of such severity despite the evidence they had available to them.  I have always and will continue to vigorously contest any suggestion of wrongdoing on my part.”

“For 40 years I dedicated my career to paediatric gastroenterology and am proud of the worldwide recognition I have received from my peers in the medical community.  I have always been committed to the care of children and my first concern has been to do the best for them.  I am forever indebted to my colleagues, family and friends for their support and understanding during what has been a difficult and prolonged investigation.  I will now be considering the GMC’s findings in detail with my legal advisers.”
