UK: thousands rally behind doctor “forced out” for politely asking Muslim woman to lift her veil

UK: thousands rally behind doctor “forced out” for politely asking Muslim woman to lift her veil

An update to a troubling story that Jihad Watch covered about veteran medical doctor, Keith Wolverson. A brief background:  He is facing an inquiry and possible dismissal for “discrimination” after asking a Muslim woman to remove her veil so he could hear her better, while treating her son in the walk-in centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.  After Dr. Wolverson’s polite request, she willingly complied, but her supremacist husband later raised a stink about it about it, resulting in an inquiry. The ordeal lead to Wolverson planning to quit “and retrain as a cosmetic practitioner.” He stated:

 I feel a major injustice has taken place. This is why you are waiting so long to see your GP and doctors are leaving in droves. This country will have no doctors left if we continue to treat them in this manner. I’m deeply upset.

The update….

More than 11,000 people have rallied behind Dr. Wolverson. 11,000 signatures flowed in to defend and support Dr. Wolverson from this gross injustice in less than 24 hours.  The case involving Dr. Wolverson demonstrates just how far one hospital will go to appease Muslims, at the expense of a dedicated employee and of justice.

“Thousands rally to defend doctor ‘forced out’ for asking Muslim woman to lift veil as more than 11,000 sign petition in less than 24 hours”, by James Tozer, Daily Mail, May 21, 2019:

More than 11,000 people have rallied behind a doctor under investigation for asking a Muslim woman to remove her veil during an appointment.

Supporters have signed an online petition in huge numbers demanding Dr Keith Wolverson, 52, keep his job to ‘protect his reputation’.

The petition also called on the General Medical Council (GMC) to ‘treat this man fairly and look at all the evidence’ after it was revealed a complaint had been made to them by the patient following the incident at Royal Stoke University Hospital.

The doctor said he is unable to find work and is planning to quit medicine and retrain as a cosmetic practitioner.

Dr Wolverson claims the woman did not object when he ‘politely’ asked her to remove the face covering, adding he only asked because he was struggling to understand what she was saying about her sick daughter.

But her husband later made a complaint and last week the locum GP was shocked to receive a letter from doctors’ regulator the General Medical Council. It said that he was being investigated over allegations of racial discrimination which could result in him being struck off.

The GMC said it never confirmed whether doctors were under investigation unless they were given conditions or suspended, neither of which has happened to Dr Wolverson at this stage…..
