    maybe your case presents issues they are struggling to find a way of not investigating?

    I had no written evidence to supply but was effectively “warned off” applying for medical retirement by the Occ Health Consultant (who temporarily took off her ‘working for my employer’ hat). She knew I needed to get the procedure completed as the Occ Health procedures were making my condition worse with the stress.
    She advised me that if I applied for retirement, aged 54, I would have to start these OH procedures all over again, but they would go on for years as no Consultant could categorically state that I would never be able to work again before my retirement age of 66. I knew that CBT/GET would also be used. We could have fought for it but I was also going through a very long ESA procedure as well and I couldn’t cope with more stress.
    I accepted dismissal on the grounds of medically certified absence and was awarded some compensation.

    leaving work due to ill health shouldnt be such a lottery @It's M.E. Linda Im sorry about that. I hadnt started engaging with benefits when I put in my ill health retirement claim but I know exactly what you mean about dealing with one process being enough to cope with. I didnt claim ESA until after my ill health retirement process was nearly finished because I couldnt cope with both. And I had gone through a CFS clinic group CFS managment programme already - luckily not full on GET in my area and I knew not to sign up to any exercise.

    Dr Sarah Myhill: My Complaint to the GMC about the PACE authors

    https://www.drmyhill.co.uk/wiki/My_Complaint_to_the_GMC_about_the_PACE_authors

    1 OCTOBER 2019 - UPDATE - ICO SLAPS DECISION NOTICE ON GMC!

    You can download the full Signed Decision Notice here - ICO Full Signed Decision Notice re Myhill vs GMC

    GREAT NEWS regarding my complaint to the GMC about the PACE authors

    The Information Commissioner’s Office [ICO] has slapped a Decision Notice on the GMC. The GMC must release the evidence base for its determination not to investigate the PACE authors or admit that there was no evidence base for that decision. If there is no evidence base, then I will take the decision not to investigate the PACE authors to the High Court for a Judicial Review.

    The GMC has consistently refused to release any evidence base for its decision not to investigate the PACE authors and so one might assume that there is no evidence base!...

    They - Dr Myhills team- are very dogged on this. Credit to them for their persistence.

    Excellent. Small steps, but vital in paving the way.

    To be fair, any such evidence would be devastating to their case. It always is with this lot.

    What's the betting the 'evidence' turns out to be opinionated pieces by the authors themselves. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Obviously they will call in experts, to provide expert opinion to do so.

    Imagine the savings in both time and money when they decide that the only experts with the relevant expertise are themselves.

    This would appear to be the way that they do things so why would this case be any different?

    I take it to mean that the GMC has been told to produce the written evidence showing why they didn't investigate the PACE authors.

    If they can't show with written evidence that there was a correct procedure followed, then Myhill will take the GMC to court for not carrying out a proper investigation.

    It would be the "decision not to investigate" which would be taken to court for review. Had they decided to investigate there would have been no need.The language, is at first sight, somewhat confusing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if 'they' pointed to the HRA report and said it had already been investigated and found to be all above board.
