Sleepless nights for Southall? Expert in hot water again

The unrepentant Professor Southall has been found guilty of misconduct by the GMC in accusing a mother of drugging and murdering her 10 year old son. The GMC also found that Professor Southall had interfered with the integrity of medical records by removing documents which he put into his own secret collection of "child abuse" cases. The GMC will apparently be considering the case further to decide whether this constitues serious professional misconduct & what penalty to apply. For further details see the Times & the Guardian & & This is London . Here are links to the full transcripts of the GMC hearing . For a more controversial take on the life & times of Professor Southall see the Dr David Southall Exposed blog with some contrary thoughts on Jonathan Gornall's blog . For a very personal perspective see Lawrence Alexander's blog .
