The Persecution of Professor Noakes continues. Cybershrink continue to explore the unprofessional conduct of the HPCSA / Medical Council.
The Health Professions Council, totally unfit for purpose, continues to act bizarrely and improperly in continuing to harass and attack one of the nicest men in South African medicine, UCT’s Prof Tim Noakes. In my two previous columns (listed below ), I described the absurd way the Council has acted in forcing a prolonged and horrifically expensive trial of this man based on a wholly trivial complaint on silly grounds, in what looks unpleasantly like professional (or unprofessional) jealousy, with some ugly hints that Big Food may be behind the fuss, not liking the good doctor’s views on a healthy diet.
