Unrepentant anti-vax GP says she’s ‘delighted’ to be struck off

A GP who showed no regrets at telling parents to let their children get measles said she was ‘delighted’ after being written off.

NHS GP Dr Jayne Donegan, who has also worked as a homeopath, told an undercover reporter for The Telegraph that she would ‘certainly want’ children to get mumps and girls to get rubella ‘in a ideal world”.

She also admitted to feeling guilty for having her own children vaccinated during a homeopathy appointment.

Dr Donegan didn’t tell the reporter to avoid vaccinating her toddler during the appointment, but she insisted on not telling her friends if she chose to opt for a ‘non-standard’ method regarding a vaccination.

“They will start thinking your child is going to infect all of their children,” she warned.

The GP was one of the few homeopaths to be denounced by the newspaper for expressing problematic views on vaccination.

A transcript of the meeting, which took place in 2019, was used in a hearing before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, which concluded that “the doctor’s fitness to practice is impaired”.

Dr. Donegan was banned from practicing medicine for at least five years by the court and removed from the register of the General Medical Council (GMC).

She can continue to work as a homeopath in the meantime and has 28 days to appeal the decision.

The doctor “deliberately” misinformed medical professionals about the “vaccination status and/or diet” of their children, the court heard.

He also criticized her “persistent lack of insight into the seriousness” of her actions.

Dr Donegan told parents to falsify their children’s medical records in order to trick schools into thinking their child had been vaccinated.

A briefing, in November 2019, led to calls from former Health Secretary Matt Hancock for her to be investigated after saying: ‘Vaccines save lives – science doesn’t do any doubt. Anyone who claims otherwise is deliberately risking lives.

The General Medical Council (GMC) alleged that she failed to give balanced opinions on the risks and benefits of vaccination and that she failed to comply with summaries of clinical knowledge as described by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

At an MMR vaccine event in June 2019, she explained to the public how to tamper with a child’s health record — or red book — detailing their vaccine history.

Dr Donegan even went so far as to say she would be ‘stricken’ for recommending such advice, as she described how parents could avoid questions in A&E about the child’s medical condition by acting out of stupid way.

Although she was criticized for her comments and opinions, she was cleared not to put “newborns at significant risk of harm” through her vaccination advice.

The nurse refused to attend the hearing, accusing it of being a “political show trial”.

Yesterday she denounced the claims and said ‘being struck off is a small price to pay for taking a legal ethical stance for the safety of Britain’s children’.

‘I am delighted… that after years of trying to get out of the GMC registry, I have finally succeeded. The worst possible outcome would be another 10 years of compulsory registration.

In written submissions, Dr Donegan said she had sought to provide balanced views in highlighting the risks of vaccination and the effectiveness of vaccines because positive information was already available.

“Vaccines are not safe,” she insisted. “They cause adverse effects, some of which are serious, including death. But the general public doesn’t know that – they think they can trust their doctors.

Dr Donegan also said: “If parents mislead healthcare professionals, the responsibility lies with healthcare professionals.

“Every doctor has a duty to ensure that a child can receive appropriate medical care as and when needed without parents being intimidated by doctors about a child’s immunization status and frightened and pushed away to seek attention for their child.”

The court said: “She said vaccines are not necessary, they have side effects, they don’t work, they have side effects that aren’t monitored and she said the government supports vaccination because ‘he makes money out of it.’

An investigation was opened into the doctor’s conduct in January 2020, but his hearing only took place last month after being pushed back by the pandemic.

This follows a rapid rise in measles cases in the UK, with 49 cases detected in the first four months of the year, compared to 54 for the whole of 2022.

Experts believe a drop in vaccinations around the world is partly to blame for the rise in numbers.

Before the pandemic, the percentage of children getting bitten for measles, mumps and rubella was already declining, but fell to a decade low last year.

According to data from the UK Health Security Agency, only 85% of five-year-olds in the country have been fully vaccinated against the diseases.

The World Health Organization sets a target of 95% to halt the contraction of disease.
