More than 11,000 people have rallied behind a doctor under investigation for asking a Muslim woman to remove her veil during an appointment.
Supporters have signed an online petition in huge numbers demanding Dr Keith Wolverson, 52, keep his job to ‘protect his reputation’.
The petition also called on the General Medical Council (GMC) to ‘treat this man fairly and look at all the evidence’ after it was revealed a complaint had been made to them by the patient following the incident at Royal Stoke University Hospital.
The doctor said he is unable to find work and is planning to quit medicine and retrain as a cosmetic practitioner.
Dr Wolverson claims the woman did not object when he ‘politely’ asked her to remove the face covering, adding he only asked because he was struggling to understand what she was saying about her sick daughter.
