Doctors who signed blank abortion forms are let off
Over 60 doctors who pre-signed blank abortion authorisation forms will not be disciplined, according to The Mail. The newspaper obtained the information through a Freedom of Information request. The General Medical Council (GMC) has taken the decision not to discipline the doctors, despite an investigation by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which confirmed the unlawful practice.
