Dear General Medical Council,

My query is about Dr Adam Campbell, Consultant Clinical Psychologist used as an expert witness in child protection court proceedings.

1. Is he registered with the GMC as a DOCTOR?

2. He has the title of DOCTOR, is he MEDICALLY trained?

3. If Dr Adam Campbell is not medically trained explain why he can use the title of DOCTOR.

4. If Dr. Adam Campbell is not medically trained, is he entitled to have parents or other family members/ potential carers medical notes/information to make evaluations/assessments?

5. If Dr Adam Campbell is not entitled to make medical evaluations and does so is he breeching any code of practice/ethics/law/etc?

5. Does Dr Adam Cambell currently work in any other capacity other than as a local authority expert witness? For example in a hospital treating NHS patients.

6. When, if ever, was the last time Dr Adam Cambell worked in any other capacity than as a local authority expert witness?

Yours faithfully,

Anne Holden

Dear Ms Holden

 

Thank you for your email dated 28 July 2012, in which you request
information about a Dr Adam Campbell, Clinical Psychologist.

 

In response to your request I have carried out a search of our register
and based on the information provided I have been unable to identify a Dr
Adam Campbell.

 

Please note Clinical Psychologists are not required to be registered with
us but with the Health and Care Professions Council, you may wish to
contact them directly for further information: [1]http://www.hpc-uk.org/

 

I should also point out that anyone with a primary medical qualification
from a school recognised by the Avicenna Directory (formerly the WHO
Directory of medical schools), is entitled to use the title of Doctor, as
of course is someone with a PhD/DPhil. 

 

I hope the above information useful.
