What have been the key learning points?

Will you disclose them to us, the public as is your obligation?

Has counselling or psychological support been made available to GMC staff who may have been upset or traumatised on learning of the distress imposed upon Dr. Ewa Michalak by the alleged conduct of the GMC?
