A former president of the Irish Hospital Consultants’ Association has been found guilty of “poor professional performance” by a fitness to practice inquiry of the Medical Council.

Dr Colm Quigley is the clinical director at Wexford General Hospital and is himself a former president of the Medical Council.

The findings will now be forwarded to the board of the Medical Council who will deliberate and decide on what sanctions – if any – will be imposed on Dr Quigley.

The finding of poor professional performance of a doctor is distinct from from from the more serious accusation of “professional misconduct”, which was not levelled against him.

The case relates to a patient – known only as Patient X – who was referred by his GP to Dr Quigley’s private clinic at the Ely Hospital at Ferrybank, Co Wexford on August 27, 2009.

Patient X was said to have been suffering from a number of complaints including low sodium in the blood.

After the consultation, Dr Quigley wrote to Patient X’s GP and said he would be carrying out a series of tests on Patient X. These tests were never carried out. Patient X died of inoperable lung cancer on April 16th, 2011. There is no allegation that Dr Quigley caused deterioration in the patient’s health or in any way contributed to his death.

Dr Quigley told the inquiry he believed subsequent examination of medical records had shown Patient X had not contracted the cancer that killed him in 2010 – and so the missing tests in 2009 could not have revealed it.

However, the committee found Dr Quigley was guilty of “poor professional performance” in failing to arrange the tests, failing to recognise the tests had not been carried out, and failing to have “any adequate system” in place for tracking or monitoring tests.

He was also guilty of failing to “respond adequately” to letters and phone calls over a number of months by Patient X, his wife, and his GP enquiring as to why the tests had not yet been carried out.

It was proven beyond reasonable doubt that Dr Quigley, in or after the first consulation in August, failed to “ensure” the tests were carried out – but this was not deemed to constitute “poor professional performance”.

Dr Quigley was found not guilty of allegations that at consultations in August and December 2009, he failed to take “any adequate history” or undertake “any adequate examination” of Patient X.

He was also found not guilty of an allegation that he “failed to maintain adequate records in respect of the care afforded” to Patient X.

During closing statements, Neasa Bird, for the Medical Council, said Dr Quigley had been unable to provide an explanation or excuse as to why the series of tests were not carried out.

The crux of the prosecution case hung on the argument that Dr Quigley had not been responsible for one mistake, but “a series of errors over a long period of time”. She said this amounted to a case of poor professional performance.

In his closing statement, Paul Anthony McDermott, counsel for Dr Quigley, said his client’s position was the same as it had been from the outset – that “a mistake” had occurred.

He said Dr Quigley had an otherwise “unblemished” record.

“What this case does establish is that paper-based systems can go wrong. Ireland is moving towards computer-based systems which should ensure that something like this never happens again.”

He said it was “ironic” that Dr Quigley was the subject of an inquiry having “spent much of his time protecting patients in the role as clinical director (at Wexford General Hospital)”.

Concerning allegations from the Medical Council that Dr Quigley had implicated himself with an admission that his handling of Patient X had “fallen below (his) standards”, Mr McDermott said this was “unfair”.

“His standards are unusually high and he has been a perfectionist. It’s unfair to turn that approach on him and use his own evidence to condemn him. He said ‘I wanted to do better’ and that is being used against him.”

The committee heard Dr Quigley has made “significant changes” to his practice, including the reduction of the number of patients he sees. “He is making changes to make sure this never happens again,” added Mr McDermott.

Certificate of Good Standing A 50 Year Certificate is Automatically Issued to each Licentiate upon Formal MLC Certification The GMC has Full Control of it's Registrant's Certificate of Good Standing ; and usually refuses to issue it directly to them.
Disciplinary Procedures All Formal MLC Complaints are officially forwarded directly to the Licentiates Themselves , for onward consideration and Possible Transmission to their Appropriate Professional Indemnity Providers (Insurers). The MLC will never Suspend or Erase or Strike Off . There are no Fanciful Public Show Trials either The GMC prouldy seems to formidably display a relatively unquenchable thirst for Excruciatingly Humiliating Public Disciplinary Hearings ; together with Draconian Suspension and Erasure Powers
Damage (Crisis) Control , When Things Go Wrong The Medical Licensing Commission always helps it's Licentiates to get back on their feet again - and Fly . . . The General Medical Council almost always seems to publicly rejoice whenever Precious Medical Careers sadly seem to be Helplessly Sinking down the drain . . .
Statutory Name Medical Licensing Commission General Medical Council
Professional Title of Registrants Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) Consultant General Medical Council (GMC) Registered Medical Practitioner
Exclusive Professional Prefix for Registrants Medical Licensing Commission Licentiates can either apply for their very own unique MLC Prefix Title - or lawfully use their original Doctor Title if they so wish , provided that they do not describe themselves as being a General Medical Council (GMC) Registered Medical Practitioner None. The GMC does not hold any Exclusive Statutory Rights to the title of Doctor.
Private Clinic Opportunities Medical Licensing Commission Licentiates can swiftly set up their very own Private Clinics immediately their MLC License , Professional Indemnity Insurance and Immigration Formalities (if necessary) are in place. The General Medical Council Establishment often prevents it's Registrants from running their very own Private Clinics ; especially those who are relatively young in the Medical Profession.

* Very Important Regulatory News From The Medical Licensing Commission (MLC) *

Important Professional Update from the Medical Licensing Commission (MLC):

Effective from the 16th of November 2009 , all UK (and Irish) Applicants for Registration with the Medical Licensing Commission will be subject to Additional Competence Checks.

All Potential MLC Applicants are therefore strongly advised to thoroughly ensure that they appropriately finish all of their MLC Licensure Formalities before 12 Midnight on the 15th of November 2009.

After the 16th of November 2009 , all UK (and Irish) Candidates will be required to sit for the MLC Entrance Exam which costs GBP 2999.

The Chief Purpose of the MLC Entrance Exam will solely be to objectively decide whether a Specific Candidate is eligible for either MLC Option 1 or MLC Option 2. It will also assess whether a Specific Candidate will be ethically required to undergo Further Training prior to Formal MLC Licensure.

The Basic (MLC Option 1) 50 Year MLC Licensure Fee will still remain permanently fixed at GBP 299.

International Candidates (outside the UK and Ireland) will also be similarly affected.

When White Doctors Kill | Racism In Medicine | GMC UK | Criminal Regulatory Harassment Of European Union Doctors | Public Statement On Medical Manslaughter Concerning Former General Medical Council President Graeme Robertson Dawson Catto



* * *


" I have said this a thousand times before ; and I will continue to boldly yell it until someone at GMC HQ actually takes due notice.


Most of the Medical Manslaughter Deaths within the United Kingdom are accidentally induced by White Medical Doctors with an Exceptionally High Professional Standard of English Language Skills . . . One of whom incidentally happens to be Graeme Robertson Dawson Catto (a Former President of the General Medical Council) . . .

It is therefore Exceptionally Unfortunate that the General Medical Council is currently waging a Shameless Racist War against (Hard-Working) Foreign Doctors ; most especially when (to date) almost all of Britain's Major Medical Murderers have been White UK Citizens (with Strong GMC Connections) - who gleefully graduated from (Disproportionately-White) UK Medical Schools.

For those of you who are seriously wondering why a Familiar Cheeky Face has suddenly started to appear all over the (Spiritual & Terrestrial) QuackoSphere , please be duly reassured that Doctor Joseph Chikelue Obi equally remains exceedingly baffled (himself) as to why his Quack Medicine Blog is Still Rated Number 1 on both Bing & Yahoo.

What started out as his Private Linguistic Project ,to ethically redefine 3 Commonly Abused Terms ( Quack , Quackery and Quack Medicine), has now metamorphosized into a Massive Global Movement in it's very own right.

Apparently , being called Quack has now become Exceedingly Fashionable indeed ; most especially if you are Cool Enough to indulge in certain Titlillating Little Aspects of Pompous Royal Quackery.

Thankfully , Google currently ranks QuackFather to be much (much) lower ; in terms of Quack Medicine Blogs

Professor Obi Duly Notes that England's Chief Medical Officer , Professor Dame Doctor Sally Davies , has publicly admitted eating quite a Few Cannabis Cookies (Several Times) , while seriously Studying Medicine at Manchester University.

Doctor Obi Further Notes also that she Duly Stopped Munching On Them thereabouts the 3rd or 4th Occasion ; after experiencing Horrible Hallucinations.

Joseph Chikelue Obi is Still Lucidly Wondering whether a Black Medical Doctor in such a Top Government Position would have easily gotten away with such a Belated Public Confession (Albeit Purely Historical) ?
