Talking Jesus With Patient Gets Doctor in Trouble
A doctor in Margate, England is under investigation for advising a patient to get a little faith, which apparently is a no-no in the British Isles.
Richard Scott, who has practiced medicine for 28 years, just happens to be a Christian. He is being investigated after he informed a 24-year old patient "that he might find solace in Christianity."
Scott, who practices at a medical center in Margate, east of London, well known for having Christian doctors, insists he only raised his spiritual beliefs after carrying out a thorough and lengthy consultation, during which medical checks and referrals for further care were arranged.
When the man's mother inquired of the consultation, however, her son apparently replied, "He just said I need Jesus." This prompted his mother to refer Scott to the GMC, claiming that he had not offered medical advice during the consultation but instead talked about Jesus.
The man in question continues to receive treatment from this same facility despite his mom's complaint.
