This is what the world has come to guys. I am truly saddened by this story. A civilised and well educated individual who has done nothing but contribute to our society is facing the sack after politely asking his patient to remove her veil so he could understand what she was saying.

Choosing to play the discrimination card. Talk about messed up priorities.

Telling that she didn’t object until her husband got involved. What is more important, communicating effectively about the health of your daughter or a male doctor seeing your wife’s face?

What the **** is wrong with some people. Seeing that the woman didn’t object, it’s quite clear her husband is a ****.

What gets me is that rather than comply with the request so that she can effectively communicate information about her daughter’s health, she choose to play the discrimination card. Talk about messed up priorities.
The funny thing is her husband or should I say her owner had a problem with the doctor asking to remove her veil. I cannot believe what this country has become. The idea that after years of education and experience you could face the sack after literally just doing your job is shocking.

Couldn't she speak for herself or is that asking for too much?

She’s not the first British Muslim woman that’s controlled by the husband, and she certainly won’t be the last. This is another example of religion (Islam) trumping reason.

I seriously doubt it. I'm pretty sure if Britain continues to act the way it does we will see the shahada over The London Eye.

Stop using this as a blatant excuse for your hatred. She has as much right to practice her religion as you do and its not an excuse to be racist or xenophobic. If you actually read the article, the Doctor left under His own accord, and if He stayed He would most likely get a slap on the risk. He is the one playing the victim card, and is working people current views on immigration to further the hatred.

Stop being hateful.

Hatred for what exactly? It has nothing to do with practising your religion but more to do with the reputation of the doctor which the couple clearly ruined. I am confused as to why she couldn't simply comply with the doctors orders after all her daughters health was on the line. How can he possible do his job if he couldn't hear the woman speak properly?

It is not hateful to lament that extremists use a simple and reasonable request to facilitate clear communication as an excuse to complain. A slap on the wrist for such a request should never be even vaguely possible. These people should integrate themselves into normal society.

HE went the press, HE made it public. It would not have "ruined his reputation" if he had
1. not left
2. went to the news outlets

It seems to have escaped your attention that he is a locum and would have left anyway, and that the article says he has not been able to secure further work because of the incident.

The concept of reputation doesn't just exist when dealing with journalists. You sound confused.

Well if she was unwilling to coperate with the doctor she should have just left, and let the gp get on with helping patients with other serious health issues who don't want to waste the NHS's time.

Clearly just someone whos got nothing better to do then ruin everyone else's life

My father has encounterd problems before when speaking to people. He has only ever had 30% hearing and really struggle to understand people without lip reading. I wonder if he would ever get in trouble if he had asked that of someone if he was being served in a shop or something.

Now once the doctor quits, he should go work as a consultant in private medical industry or as an advisor to healthcare investors in private equity. Probably make 3x on his current salary without having to deal with the hours/life of a doctor.

This highlights the problem of the state sector, way to much bureaucracy and total BS, management should have swiftly dismissed the complaint, its no wonder doctors are leaving the nhs.

What happens to the family who made this complaint, probably got a compensation payout or something else ridiculous...
