One of the doctors struck off over the MMR jab controversy asked the High Court yesterday to rule his treatment “unfair and unjust”.
Professor John Walker-Smith is appealing against the General Medical Council’s determination that he was guilty of serious professional misconduct. He lost his license to practice along with Dr Andrew Wakefield, the doctor who triggered the global MMR vaccine scare.
He is being supported by the parents of many children with autism and bowel disease who were seen by him at the Royal Free Hospital, north London, up to his retirement in 2001.
The hearing is expected to take ten days.
