Speakers’ Corner


This is a reminder to readers that the MS-Blog is the digital equivalent of Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. Every blogger allowed or invited onto the platform uses their own soapbox to stand on and they can say what they want. Bloggers are aware that if they get criticised or prosecuted for anything they write or say, for example, fake news, slander or libel, they will have to stand on their own two feet.

The MS-Blog is not an official University or NHS site and hence the University or NHS has no jurisdiction over the site or the individual bloggers.

The MS-Blog does not represent Barts-MS either. Barts-MS is not an official organisation, but simply an umbrella term that is used to describe MS-related activities that happen in either Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, which is part of the Queen Mary University of London, and Barts Health NHS Trust. The medical school and the NHS Trust are closely affiliated with each other so using the term Barts-MS simply makes it easier to describe things.

  • Prof G and other doctors should or must be allowed to openly share ideas about MS with the MS community at large. Doesn’t the UK’s General Medical Council guidance on social media say “ there is nothing in the guidance that restricts doctors’ freedom of speech online or stops them from raising concerns. … the paragraph on anonymity in the guidance [if you identify yourself as a doctor] is framed as you should‘ [then also identify yourself by name] ; rather than ‘you must‘; to support doctors exercising their professional judgement”?
