It what is perhaps not particularly surprising news, Myles Bradbury, the doctor who was sentenced to 22 years for various cases of child abuse, has been struck off the medical register.

This was obviously inevitable given the offence and sentence, but it is still a formality that needs to be undertaken (perhaps a point of relevance to the Ched Evans case). The sentence of the GMC (General Medical Council) of erasure from the record is the most severe sentence that can be passed.

In theory, Dr Bradbury can apply in five years time to be restored to the register (see here for details of this). It is unlikely that he would make an application (and he will be in prison for the next 11 years anyway) at any time, and if he does then it is even more unlikely that he will practice again.

We commented that the sentence seemed very high, but even if he appeals successfully, this will only be against the sentence and even if it reduced to, say, 14 years (the maximum for these offences), then it won’t change anything in terms of the GMC.
