The General Medical Council is investigating a complaint about a GP who says he offers spiritual help as part of treatment
A GP is under investigation by the General Medical Council (GMC) and could lose his job because he involves his Christian faith in consultations with patients.
For the past 20 years, says Dr Richard Scott, he has “involved a spiritual angle” for patients with depression, anxiety or addiction.
Now his job is on the line after the National Secular Society (NSS) complained to the GMC in May that a “highly vulnerable” patient felt “discomfort at the use of prayer”.
