In this News article last week by Owen Dyer (BMJ 2007;335:416-7, 1 Sep, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39322.418831.DB), we wrongly stated that “the GMC panel concluded that all of the substantive charges against Dr [Jayne] Donegan were unproved except for the charge of quoting selectively from research.” Dr Donegan was in fact cleared on all six charges, the panel saying that in the reports that she provided she “did not fail to be objective, independent and unbiased.” The BMJ apologises to Dr Donegan for the error.
