Thoughtful House Responds to General Medical Council Findings

Thoughtful house 2 Jan 28th, 2010

Thoughtful House is naturally disappointed by today’s report from the UK General Medical Council.

A careful examination of the full record of the Council’s inquiry will show that the charges made against Drs. Wakefield, Murch, and Walker-Smith are unfounded and unfair. We invite anyone to review the record, and to draw their own conclusions.

The work of Thoughtful House on behalf of children with developmental disorders and their families goes on. We are dedicated to the recovery of these children.

Our focus continues to be to provide the best possible treatment for these children, and to conduct medical research in order to ensure continuing improvements in the quality of treatment available.

Thoughtful House supports a safety-first vaccination policy and upholds the right of parents to choose what’s best for their children. We urge parents who have concerns about vaccinating their children to consult with knowledgeable medical professionals.

More information about us, and the work we do, can be found at Thoughtful House.

Dr Wakefield,
Thank you for the work you do and continue to have done. My son is better because of your research. Vindication will come. I can't imagine what this has been like for you and your family. So many families you have helped support you and will fight with you in support of your findings. We are greatful to you, "the truth will set you free" and it has yet to be revealed.


Andrew Wakefield is a a GOOD man. His colleagues are good men and women. Let them do their research! Let researchers do their work. And let the chips fall where they may.
Follow the science...


We took my grandson down to your offices and you were great. He is doing much better with the help of all the dedicated people like yourselves.
