The definition of “qualified medical practitioner” for treating children with experimental medicines

Freedom of information request dated 24th September 2021

Dear NHS National Services Scotland,

As a Freedom of Information Act 2002 request please provide the recorded definition of qualified medical practitioner as it relates to treating children under the age of 16 with experimental medicines i.e. drugs that have not completed clinical trial and received full authorisation by the medicines regulator.

Yours faithfully,


In this instance, it is noted that the statutes do not actually define “qualified medical
practitioner”. However, this definition would then be required to be set through legal precedence and not by NSS for the NHS in Scotland.

In other words:

There is no definition of “qualified medical practitioner” in law. This means that an experiment medicine like BNT162b2 can be pumped into the arms of a child by a school nurse.

Public Health Scotland Response

Unless we are very much mistaken Public Health Scotland do not want it known that they are rolling out an experimental medicine to children without taking cognisance of The Age of Legal Capacity (Scotland) Act 1991 by ensuring that a registered member of the GMC is obtaining informed consent from children before pumping them with mRNA (and potentially GO).

Age of Legal Capacity (Scotland) Act 1991 (

Legal Capacity for under sixteens is only legal if he capable of understanding the nature and possible consequences of the procedure or treatment.

A person under the age of 16 years shall have legal capacity to consent to the use of the person’s human cells in accordance with Schedule 3 to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 for the purposes of a project of research where the person is capable of understanding the nature of the research;

QUOTE from a senior member of the medical profession who wishes to remain unnamed:

“A Registered Medical Practitioner is a CARE PROFESSIONAL who is registered on the General Medical Council List of Registered Medical Practitioners with a license to practice.

Yet the definition of a qualified medical practitioner is not listed. Looking at other (common best) countries this can apply to medical staff; yet a health practitioner includes a nurse.

It reads as if a qualified medical practitioner includes a health practitioner under supervision of a registered med- practitioner who is on the premises; e.g. a school doctor.

I worked with school doctors and nurses: to my memory; Nurses did only medical interventions in the presence of a doctor.  Yet, now during the totalism of 2021 what includes the premises; could that be electronic?

Public Health Scotland will be keen to omit the current definitions of all of these essential words.”
