ABCD is aware of the GMC Fitness to Practise Tribunal regarding Dr Paul Grant, GMC 6057253, a former editor of the journal. Dr Grant was one of a team of three editors between February 2014 and December 2014, and was editor-in-chief between January 2015 and March 2016. In March 2016, Dr Grant informed the directors of BJD of a complaint to the GMC and his offer to stand down as editor was accepted by the directors. None of the matters considered by the tribunal related to activities whilst Dr Grant was editor of BJD. However in the light of the GMC findings BJD has initiated measures to verify and authenticate original articles co-authored by Dr Grant in the journal.
