    I believe Craig R posted that’s the deadline for supporting complaints is 25 March. Presumably initial response from GMC will be in April or May not looked up what the process is.

    I can imagine - and sort of hope - there is a great deal of head scratching going on. In reality these complaints should be treated no differently to any other complaint, straight down the middle impartiality and fairness. But it will be very interesting to see. I would think Sarah Myhill's own letter to them has led to plenty of head scratching.

    And judging by that NHS occupational Health guidance by Madan that @Sly Saint posted the impact is felt by everyone who has been pushed out of jobs by employers and no doubt also on whether occupational pension schemes give ill health pensions

    It's maybe trivial, but isn't Open Office an option? I totally understand your reasons against Microsoft.

    Sorry, I read that later - my post seems misplaced. Those terrible things make me so sad and angry. There seems to be no love at all in many doctors. This lack of empathy is shocking. It's not only criminal, it's sick.

    You should know that there is a fork of OpenOffice called LibreOffice which seems to get better reviews than OpenOffice. I use LibreOffice. Haven't touched anything microsoft for ages.

    Should this tech stuff be broken out to a separate thread?

    @Robert 1973 - I read in another place that the deadline for both signing the petition and sending letters is 25 March. Is it worth adding that to the thread title, do you think?

    So far, 6,500 signatures on the petition and 150 complaints to the GMC, apparently.

    Today I sent my letter via eMail. Tomorrow I will send it via post too, as said on MyHill's homepage. Thank you, @Keela Too, your letter was helpful.
