Ex BMA chief facing GMC

20th October 2010

The former chief of the British Medical Association has faced a General Medical Council hearing regarding operations he performed on 14 patients.

It is alleged that demands on James Johnson's time put the health of his patients at risk. Mr Johnson told the GMC panel in Manchester: "It was certainly a busy life. But colleagues at Halton hospital were used to my rather unusual way of life. I always made myself available. We had a well-honed system for dealing with problems. The work I did for various organisations was very time-consuming, but my first loyalty was and is to my patients."
