"A #Christian doctor who risked losing his job for offering to pray with patients has been cleared of any wrongdoing after being subjected to a three-month probe over an anonymous complaint.
Dr Richard Scott, 59, was investigated after the National Secular Society (NSS) claimed that a 'highly vulnerable' patient 'felt discomfort at the use of prayer'. The case was taken up by the General Medical Council, despite the NSS admitting it did not know who the complainant was and that they had received the allegations second hand.
The investigation followed a Radio 4 interview which Scott took part in regarding the freedom of religion in #England .
In the interview, aired in January, Dr Scott spoke about how he sometimes used his faith to help patients with depression and anxiety. 'I always go through three elements: does somebody need tablets, would someone benefit from counselling, and as an option I offer the possibility of Christianity,' he said. 'Only last week a lady converted to #Christianity in clinic as a result of that introduction.' In June, the General Medical Council wrote to Scott informing him that it had received 'some information' from the NSS and would begin a fitness to practise investigation in to him.
The #NSS claimed they had been contacted ’by a member of the public who was concerned because an acquaintance whom she describes as "highly vulnerable" is being treated at the practice and claimed that the patient "does not feel able to express discomfort at the use of #prayer ".' The NSS letter also cited the BBC radio interview, The Battles That Won Our Freedoms: 3 Freedom of #Religion , and claimed Dr Scott was ignoring GMC guidelines ’by preaching to patients'."

WADA has handed Russia a 4-year ban from all major sporting events. The World Anti-Doping Agency last month recommended the Russian Anti-Doping Agency non-complaint over inconsistences in anti-doping data. The ban will see individual athletes from the European country only able to participate at the 2020 Olympics and 2022 World Cup as a neutral, with no flag and anthem. They will still compete normaly at the Euro 2020 as UEFA is not listed as a "major event organisation." Russia have done this before at the 2018 Winter Olympics where 168 athletes competed neutrally.
