Dr Gwen Adshead GMC FTP panelist comes out as a preacher

Dr Gwen Adshead, Consultant Psychotherapist at Broadmoor Hospital, worked at General Medical Council in London but failed to declare her conflict of interests. One of these conflicts of interests is her association with Special Interest Group in Spirituality at the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Dr Gwen Adshead has now come out as a preacher. See below this article.

Dr Gwen Adshead is a judgmental person, in my opinion. When she does not understand something she condemns it using term such as evil which has supernatural connotations. For example mentally ill women who committed crimes. BBC interviewed her in a program with a title "The Woman's Right to be Evil". Listen here. Dr Adshead is well spoken and there is a good vocabulary but she fails to convince that what she does not understand is rightly called evil as she does call it. Although, she tries to back track it is all too late. The guillotine has fallen.

I think there is a missionary plug for Africa (drawing attention of the listener to that continent), a bit about possibility of pediatricians and child psychiatrists possibly being pedophiles but not including there Forensic Psychotherapist. Vulnerable people (includes those in so called Special Hospitals for the offenders) are attractive to sociopaths. Doctors who appear before Fitness to Practice Panel are vulnerable. All professions dealing with vulnerable could be attractive to social psychopaths. It is recognized that business world also attracts social psychopaths. At least one serial killer had ambition of becoming a judge. Dr Adshead seems to draw attention to one particular group of professionals in the context which is not immediately obvious as to why. She did have association with POPAN, but did not chose to say that clergy could attract pedophiles in her interview on radio programme.

She draws attention to herself being more fearful after she had children when dealing with pedophiles. Surely, men have strong feelings for children too.

People who have attitudinal problems are dangerous in medicine, but GMC is asleep.

I do not know exactly how many doctors Dr Adshead judged at General Medical Council. She was on my panel. when no longer appointed.
GMC FTP panelists must remove themselves from the hearing when they receive a bundle of documents before the hearing and have conflicts of interests. A person who lacks insight cannot do it. Dr Gwen Adshead is one of those people. My case did involve the issue of wearing religious uniforms in the psychiatric setting, something that both the GMC and the Royal College of Psychiatrists closed their eyes to. Dr Gwen Adshead was Chair of Ethics Committee at the Royal College of Psychiatrists that refused to address the issue of the wearing of religious uniforms when working with mentally ill for about ten years. Both The Royal College of Psychiatrists and The General Medical Council are registered as charities. GMC is a charity even though both the High Court and Court of Appeal decided that it could not be a charity. However, GMC waited for the right political moment and got permission from Charity Commission to be registered as a charity. The tax savings could finance a number of things including prosecutions, pensions and so on. GMC became a service for offended and insecure medical directors who could count on GMC to destroy political dissidents. Dr Adshead was part of that machinery.

There are men who have been raped by clergy and they are frightened when confronted by reminders of their trauma and would be less likely to tell what happened to them to professionals.

Repeatedly at The Royal College of Psychiatrists it was religious Presidents of the college and religiously biased Ethics Committee that made decisions what can and cannot be on their agenda. Their members also participated in my persecution for years with approval from GMC.

Thus, in medicine religious persons decide what would be on the agenda and religious judge later on at The General Medical Council.

It is eleven years since I raised the issue of wearing of religious uniforms when working with mentally ill, many times and with various medical institutions but had no real success. Patients do not come first whatever they may say to the contrary. I also know that many religious people do agree that patients come first but in medical institutions they do not practice it. So something else is more important. Power? Conformity?

Chapel Notes
I’ve never had a chance to ask that...
Well, now you do. What puzzles, amuses, or offends you about Christians and their beliefs - or what do you simply not know? Come and talk it over with wine and nibbles, among believers and sceptics, at 8pm on Tuesday evenings in Y1, fortnightly from 25th January.
Late Night Communion
Want to go to church, but can't quite cope with Sunday mornings? This very simple, short, service of Holy Communion at 10.30pm on a Tuesday night might just do the trick. Followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows in Y1.
Lectio Divina
or 'divine reading' is the name given to an ancient method of prayerfully reading the Scriptures together. Neither a bible study nor a supervision, all are welcome to experience it for themselves every Thursday lunchtime at 1.30pm in the Lady Chapel.
The Friends of Whitworth House

Too much work is bad for the soul. Keep an eye out for posters advertising the chance to relax on the sofas in Y1 watching films and eating pizza instead!
Stop working, and get ready for sleep with
Muffins, Hot Chocolate and Port
every Wednesday night from 11pm in Y1.
The perfect way to end the day.

In medicine, we do not understand everything about human psychology, but it does not mean that what we do not understand is to be condemned with religious force. Dr Adshead does that.

If you listen carefully to her speaking on women and evil you will note a "plug" for Africa, a well known missionary ground for Christians, a bit against paediatricians and Child Psychiatrists being paedophiles. Of course, it is possible, for anti social personalities to be attracted to the vulnerable and Dr Gwen Adshead does not mention Forensic Psychotherapist too. Offenders are very vulnerable to psychopathic attacks.
