Doctor is allowed to practise medicine again

Jan 8 2011
by Madeleine Brindley, Western Mail

A DOCTOR specialising in the treatment of ME has been told she is allowed to practise medicine again.

Dr Sarah Myhill had been suspended from the medical register by the General Medical Council following complaints about the content of her website and her management of a patient.

But a GMC interim orders panel hearing has restored her name to the register with conditions.

Dr Myhill, who is based in Llangunllo, Powys, last night said: “I am so grateful to those thousands of patients and medical colleagues who knew that I was a good doctor who had done nothing wrong and kept their faith in me.

“Without their help and support I would have struggled to find the strength to fight.”

She has said she would pursue a High Court case against the GMC on the grounds it “blatantly infringed and broke the law and its own rules”.

Dr Myhill also pledged to challenge the conditions on her licence to practise, which she described as “face-saving gestures”.

A GMC interim orders panel suspended Dr Myhill in October describing her as a risk to patients.

The action stemmed from complaints about the content of her website, which included advising women against taking the contraceptive pill, and the way in which she had managed a patient with neurological disease.

This week’s hearing restored Dr Myhill’s licence to practise but imposed nine conditions, including not prescribing medicines outside of their licensed use or limits and keeping a detailed log whenever she personally prescribes or advises prescription.

The panel’s determination said: “Imposing conditions on your registration, at this time, is a necessary and proportionate response to the risks posed by you practising medicine unrestricted.”

The order will be reviewed in three months.
