Ah, correct. I misinterpreted the paragraph about being suspended. Presumably the suspension was initiated by the agency and / or the LHA in Stoke once aware of the GMC's letter .

That said, it's still interesting as to why this course of action was taken, rather than apply other sanctions, such as a verbal warning, or "words of advice " for example.

I am aware that suspension is the default option for serious allegations given by doing so those involved ) are removed from their work areas and hence neither able to influence an outcome along with being removed from those making the accusations which may escalate and result in grounds for further disciplinary action.

As I say though, you get the impression the allegation contained the complaint to the GMC may be far more profound than the reports suggest.
