Optical Express really don’t care who they employ to operate on people’s eyes
This was never more apparent than when they shockingly allowed Dr Philippe Leynaud to operate on their French patients - after the GMC struck him off the UK medical register in 2013.
Although Optical Express closed the store (luckily for the French people), it’s incredulous that Dr Philippe Leynaud now has his own clinic in Lyon!
I believe that a doctor’s full history should be disclosed to the medical council of any country he or she attempts to work in, and the same restrictions put on their license to practice.
However, if the French medical council is as tolerant as the GMC, with surgeons like David Teenan, Dimitris Kazakos et al allowed to continue operating with ever increasing and numerous legal claims against them, no doubt Dr Leynaud will also continue to damage many more of his patients without hindrance!
