Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
They may prosecute as this quite a serious offence. If they do charge you, you should get a solicitor immediately. You will know if get a complaint through from the procurator fiscal, typically within six months.

would it be better if i handed in my notice at work

It is neither better or worse if you hand in your notice.
If your doctor has noted this in your records, which is likely, it will remain on them.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
how will that affect me getting another doctor
Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
I don't know. It depends on the new doctor.
