Completely ignore everything any profession says about its intentions to "protect you". Their intentions are, 100%, to milk you while protecting themselves.
GB Shaw said it 100yrs ago: "All professions are conspiracies against the laity". Fact.
The only time you will get any joy out of the professional bodies (there "to protect the public" - yeah, right), will be if they happen to hate their colleague under investigation more than they hate your upstart complaining ass.
Even then, they may protect him if they're involved in the same racket.
