This e-mail with its serious complaints re Dr Smout and her colleagues at the Albany Clinic, Newton Abbot was sent to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  as advised by Mark Charlesworth responding from Manchester for the GMC.  This at 5.14pm 21-04-2-021  He was helpful.  I received no acknowledgement.

I have re-sent the e-mail today at 11.11am  and later 'phoned the GMC on  0161 923 6602

To make sure that it had arrived (no notice of failure) I spoke with Ms Sarah Holt who answered.  She could not find a record of it, and told me that the GMC only looked at individual doctors and not at practices.  I responded - 'in that case consider my complaint as being against Dr Smout, since she is the lead GP.'  Ms Holt told me that my complaint would be in a 10 day long 'chain'.  I went on to say how deep was my concern - that 'British medical standards have been lowered beyond any imagination'.  

The GMC was quick to 'de-register' my good and courageous colleague Mr Muhammad Adil FRCS for expressing his concern at the 'totalitarian' response of a psychopathic cabal of HMG ministers (underlined words mine) - early in 2020.  His concern was mostly for the livelihoods of the people in the regions about him in the north.  I found no reference to this 'kangaroo court' action by the GMC on its web site.  I would guess that the action against Mr Adil was instigated within 'government'.

I will wait for 24 hours, consult with 3 doctors meanwhile, and be very ready to write to the GMC.  The Albany Practice is effectively shut.

If you do not hear anything by 1pm tomorrow - please phone me, or if they do contact you.  Encourage Derek - like so many British foot soldiers.  'Tommy this, and Tommy that'. 

love    David

Dear David

As discussed I visited Albany Doctors Surgery around 2.45pm and spoke to the male receptionist through the intercom as there is no access to the building. I informed him that you had not received a reply to the points raised in the email from you last week. I requested that someone should check the emails and reply to you as requested.

Many Thanks Dianne Hopkins

URGENT    Dear Dr Smout and fellow 'doctors in partnership',

I learn from Derek and his wife, that no contact has been made by yourselves with Derek - your patient.  I need not remind you of that truism - oft repeated - your 'duty of care'.

I have attempted to 'phone your practice just now.  I heard Dr Thomas and had the 6 numbers.  Prescriptions etc.  I tried no 6 - re booking for 'vaccinations'.  I heard the recorded message and then the line was closed.  I imagined being a patient - in distress, or a relative,  - someone with an acute illness or anxiety. 

To say you are at 'arms length' would be a euphemism.

If I do not hear today that you have made contact with Derek Hopkins about the definite adverse effects of a 'vaccination' you were responsible for prescribing, and having it inoculated 10th March at 8.30 am, I will report your failure to to your duty as doctors to the General Medical Council

It was very prompt at 'de-registering' Mr Muhammad Adil FRCS early in 2020 for having spoken against HMG response to an acute respiratory with very low general mortality.  His main concern was loss of many livelihoods, and the many adverse effects - especially on the vulnerable eg  those already ill with anxiety and depression.

Dear Dr Smout and fellow 'doctors in partnership',   15-04-2021  2.33 pm

I am a close friend of Derek Hopkins DOB 30/05/1962. Address 19 Quay Road, Newton Abbot TQ12 2BU.

I write urgently to you in great concern about his health following an inoculation of what I presume was the Astra Zeneca/Oxford agent at 8.30 am 10-03-2021.  (Not a 'vaccine')  He knew that I was advising people against receiving this experimental agent against the overwhelming propaganda for its administration.  But he wanted to see his father in his care home who he believes has not long to live.  (He could have seen him at any time in this past year.)

I knew of his thoracic cage fractures in 1995 and the likely DVT which followed, along with at least three episodes of DVT subsequently.  He phoned me re the last - about 5 years ago.  He then had a 'plaster' on a leg following a diagnosis of a ruptured Achilles tendon.  He was in extreme pain and the calf was swollen inside it. 'Reassurance' at the 'MIU' at NA.  I advised that it be split immediately and his leg examined.  That took place at Torbay DGH and I believe a scan showed several PEs.  I know he has been on Warfarin since, and the INR is closely monitored by yourselves.

I saw him just before the 10th of March, and commented on how well this hard working man looked.  I have seen him twice since, the last on Saturday 10th of April, when I took a fuller history and examined his 'rash' again.

History  A 'jab' at 8.30 am Wednesday 10-03-2021.  Splitting headache at 4pm.  Soldiered on repairing a tractor tyre puncture.  By 6pm felt 'rough' generally.  He continued trying to work at his normal pace but by Saturday, a day when he almost always worked, he had to stay home.  Lethargy was prominent. He returned to his work the next week but lethargy and muscle 'fatiguability' persisted - and to the present.

At a week a rash appeared over his limbs and belly.  He phoned your surgery and a lady doctor assured him his symptoms were not due to the inoculation, and advised him to see a pharmacist for an ointment to rub on.  The rash was fading a little he thought.

I had noted oedema of his forearms along with unusual patches of redness - some almost rhomboid in shape - on his forearms.  Stretching the skin causes them to pale ie capillaries 'congested' - no diapedesis of RBCs.  I noted a little desquamation of the red blotches on his calves.


His condition since 4pm 10-03-2021 is entirely due to the inoculation of an unnecessary agent.  His condition - an affection of the intima, (with reported thrombocytopenia in others) was predicted by experts but their opinions have been ruthlessly censored.  I could add further information re sagittal sinus thrombosis for instance but wish you to know that some patients showing these vascular effects have gone on to organ failure and death.

I advise you to see him as doctors who have encouraged this inoculation.  (I have read your website text re the coronavirus, and emphasise that the mortality due to this virus alone is very low in people without co-morbidities.)  You will be very aware of that central duty in our calling - 'do no harm'.  And although it is late in the day I advise his D Dimer level be estimated along with an FBC and LFT's. 

for truth

David Halpin MB BS FRCS  01364 661115  Former trauma and orthopaedic surgeon Torbay, Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Hospital (bulldozed 1996) and the RD&E.  And often quoted as saying 'General practice is the bedrock of good British medicine.'

I add this extract -

London doctor describes ‘unprecedented’ level of sickness after COVID injection The doctor and consultant wrote that she was ‘struggling’ to understand ‘the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population.’

I have no reason to doubt her testimony.  In keeping with the ruthless censorship, I am told by a GP colleague that her evidence has been removed from the Rapid Responses of the British Medical Journal, just as my fellow FRCS Muhammad Adil was 'deregistered' last summer by the General Medical Council. This action of a 'kangaroo court' is not even minuted on its website.

Dr. Polyakova wrote that she was “struggling” to understand “the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population.” “The levels of sickness after vaccination is [sic] unprecedented and staff are getting very sick and some with neurological symptoms which is having a huge impact on the health service function. Even the young and healthy are off for days, some for weeks, and some requiring medical treatment. Whole teams are being taken out as they went to get vaccinated together.” Polyakova defended this position by revealing the experience she had had in recent months, managing a health service during COVID times, as well as professing to have “more vaccines in my life than most people.” While clearly not what has been commonly styled an “anti-vaxxer,” Polyakova wrote that coercive injections would be dangerous and against the ethical principles of the health service: “Mandatory vaccination in this instance is stupid, unethical and irresponsible when it comes to protecting our staff and public health.” “We are in the voluntary phase of vaccination, and encouraging staff to take an unlicensed product that is impacting on their immediate health, and I have direct experience of staff contracting Covid AFTER vaccination and probably transmitting it. In fact, it is clearly stated that these vaccine products do not offer immunity or stop transmission. In which case[,] why are we doing it?” Continuing, the consultant referred also to the undeniable lack of data about the hastily developed injections, questioning the long-term effects they would have, particularly on the health service: “There is no longitudinal safety data (a couple of months of trial data at best) available and these products are only under emergency licensing. What is to say that there are no longitudinal adverse effects that we may face that may put the entire health sector at risk?” Pointing to seasonal flu, which is a “massive annual killer,” which “inundates the health system,” Polyakova commented that the flu vaccines are not only voluntary, but also serve to protect against other illnesses of “higher consequence.” “Coercion and mandating medical treatments on our staff, of members of the public especially when treatments are still in the experimental phase, are firmly in the realms of a totalitarian Nazi dystopia and fall far outside of our ethical values as the guardians of health.”
