We refer to the article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-55369784

 

It is written that:

GenderGP is a private company founded by Helen Webberley, who was suspended by the General Medical Council for running an unlicensed transgender clinic. She is challenging the decision.

 

This is untrue and potentially defamatory

 

The truth is:

An interim order of suspension has been made in respect of Dr Webberley’s registration with the General Medical Council by an Interim Orders Tribunal of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service. The interim order is not for running an unlicensed transgender clinic. Dr Webberley is defending allegations that her fitness to practise is impaired, but there has been no decision made by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal that her fitness to practise is impaired. There has been no finding of fact by an Interim Orders Tribunal as that is not their function in respect of her case.
