That’s a question this case in the UK is trying the answer.
As Dr. Crippen, the crusty blogger who notes the inanities of the UK medical system, notes, extra-martial affairs are commonplace.
But should a physician be censured, effectively ending his medical career, for having a dangerous liaison?
“If every man and women in Britain who had an extra-marital affair were to be prevented from working,” writes Dr. Crippen, “the country would grind to a halt. Why should it be any different for doctors?”
It seems that ending a career over such an indiscretion may be on the excessive side.
