We have set up this online petition on behalf of people living with Diabetes, their carers and families in support of our lovely Consultant Dr Paul Grant.

Bring back Dr. Grant

Paul Grant (often known as Doctor Paul) worked as the clinical leader for the community diabetes service since it was set up in 2016. Before this he had worked in Brighton Diabetes services for many years at the County Hospital.

Unfortunately Dr. Grant has been suspended by the GMC for admitted failings in academic publication matters and later using the FRCP title after his name (a more senior type of royal college of Physicians membership).

He is apologetic and pained by his failings.

He has been dishonest and knows where he went wrong.

Despite these errors we still support Dr. Grant and want him to come back to work.  He knows he went wrong but He is now a loyal and trusted Doctor who works hard for patients and groups locally. He has saved the life of my sister on 2 occasions from DKA and has looked after me for years. We have a strong family history of Diabetes. He is very reliable and good.
Currently there is a significant lack of Diabetes specialised Doctors in Sussex.

To show commitment, solidarity, confidence and support for Dr Grant we have asked people to sign this petition in light of and full knowledge of his dishonest actions so we can let the medical authorities (the clinical commissioning groups) and the Doctors regulator (the General Medical Council) know that despite these problems he remains a good and trusted Doctor who we want to come back to work and look after us. We don't want to lose him.

Prolonged suspension is extreme. It does no-one any favours. It's a crisis of failing people with Diabetes if he is not forgiven.

We care because he cares for us.

His case details are on the MPTS website,
