The Telegraph report:
More than 750 GPs, surgeons and other doctors have kept their jobs despite being found guilty of offences including taking indecent images of children, drug trafficking and fraud.
Medical chiefs have said they cannot automatically ban convicted doctors because it may breach their human rights.
Campaigners reacted angrily to the disclosures on Sunday night. Roger Goss, the co-director of Patient Concern, said: “Human rights should not allow doctors to get away with still practising after being convicted of these crimes.”
