I think I’ve lived a very sheltered life as I’ve never met anyone like Susie.
— Sam White[1]

Samuel White (February 1980–)[2] is a holistic practitioner[3] and former NHS GP[4] with "libertarian principles"[5] who was temporarily suspended and gagged for spreading medical misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.[6] He went viral celebrating the lifting of that gag order by seeming to broadcast his sexual kinks to the world.[7][1] As of January 2024, White conducts private holistic consultations for £345 for 60 minutes[3] and is no longer licensed to practise by the General Medical Council (GMC).Wikipedia[4]

A very sheltered life[edit]

In June 2021, White posted a seven-minute video clip to Instagram and Twitter in which he claimed to have resigned from his former role as a partner in a GP practice in Hampshire because of the ‘lies’ around the NHS and Government approach to the pandemic that were ‘so vast’ he could no longer ‘stomach or tolerate’ them. He specifically expressed unsubstantiated concerns about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine and testing methods and falsely claimed that ‘masks do nothing’.[5][6]

Following "serious concerns" reported to the GMC, White was temporarily suspended from his position as a locum GP, and following the lifting of the suspension, was placed under a gag order for a maximum of 18 months, to prevent him "using some language that echoed conspiracy theories about the pandemic," and "may have a real impact on patient safety."[5] This was done in accordance with GMC ethical guidelines, also applying to social media, that doctors "must not impose [their] beliefs and values on patients or cause distress by the inappropriate or insensitive expression of them."[6]

In September 2021, White was part of an anti-vax brain trust, including non-practicing and seemingly confused solicitor Anna de Buisseret, Dolores Cahill, obstetrician turned ivermectin pusher Tess Lawrie, clottish funeral director John O'Looney, and former Pfizer pharmacologist turned antivax activist Michael Yeadon,Wikipedia which met with a “senior” Tory MP, said to have been head of the 1922 Committee,Wikipedia Sir Graham Brady,Wikipedia to call for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout to be paused “as a matter of urgency” and for those vaccines to “at no point” be given to children. Brady, while not confirming the meeting had taken place, clarified that if it had, it would not amount to an endorsement of their views.[8][9]

Upon appeal to the High Court,Wikipedia Justice Ian Dove,Wikipedia with reference to provisions in the Human Rights Act 1998, concluded that the GMC had made "an error of law and a clear misdirection," in restricting White's freedom to express medical misinformation.[10] Dove stressed he was expressing no views on the merits of White’s claims, but rather ruling on the tribunal’s decision making process.[11]

White celebrated the lifting of the ban by immediately appearing on the ever-reliable GB News to repeat his claims. A clip of the interview, seemingly screen-recorded on an Apple device, which was uploaded to his own website, went viral after it was found to be interrupted part-way through by a WhatsApp message popping up on the screen reading:

As you rest just give a thought to using me for your pleasure. Having me on my knees doing whatever you say... xxx. — Suzie Sub

This, according to White, was the work of hackers and he had "never met anyone like Susie."[7][1] He says he reported the incident to the police and had a crime reference number, which is possibly where he got the idea for his next misadventure.

On December 20, 2021, White, joined by anti-vax solicitors Lois Bayliss and Philip Hyland and retired police officer turned sovereign citizen Mark Sexton, filed a criminal complaint over the government vaccine rollout with Hammersmith and Fulham Police at Hammersmith police station. The complainants were issued Metropolitan Police crime reference number (CRN) 6029679/21, which was used to promote the false claim that a massive criminal investigation was underway.[12] However, the Met issued a formal rejection of the complaint on February 22, 2022, stating:

Following an assessment of all the available evidence, it is clear that no criminal offences are apparent. The Metropolitan Police will not be launching a criminal investigation and no further action will be taken. — Met Police Spokesperson[13]
