England's top GP resigns over trolling other doctors

Dr Arvind Madan slammed small practices under his pseudonym, 'Devil's Advocate'

England's top GP has resigned from his position after admitting he trolled other commenters on a GP-only website.

Dr Arvind Madan, director of primary care and deputy medical director at NHS England, has admitted to posting provocative comments under the pseudonym ’Devil’s Advocate’ on the Pulse Today website.

According to the Telegraph newspaper, in one message, he wrote: "We can get six-figure salaries for working four days a week, 45 weeks a year. Run that past the general public and see how much sympathy you get."

His trolling antics were exposed after an interview with Pulse magazine, where he said GPs should be “pleased” when small practices closed.
