What wonderful news for her. Next stop - overturn her original conviction of manslaughter?
If 40-60% ailments are resolved with an e-consultation without the need to book a face to face appt, then looking at it statistically, this means that 40-60% are not resolved and do need a face to face appt booking.Given that they will already have had a 10minute e-consultation, they will then need a face to face 10 minute appointment arranging.
In other words, approx half of all patients undertaking e-consultations will require 2 x 10 minute appointments to resolve their issue. Could someone please explain to me how this is going to reduce our workload?
Hi Kate, It’s lovely to hear from you again and to learn that you are adjusting to your new life without your husband and finding a new norm. I am glad that you share everything with Richie; I am sure he is very proud of how you and your family are coping. Look after yourselves, Sally.
My thoughts are with you and your family. With every best wish for the future,
You will be sadly missed by all Pulse readers. I wish you every success for the future.
What a beautiful and moving piece of writing.
I understand the MPS states that the eportfolio of Dr Bawa-Garba was not provided as evidence and used against her in court. However, they are just being picky, as a letter from her educational supervisor published in the BMJ clearly states that her reflection of the incident and her consultants comments about this written in her ‘training encounter form’ was provided to the prosecuting counsel and this was used against her.
Beautifully written article. May your grandmother rest in peace.
It looks like there is a lot of support for her, not just from the medical and nursing fraternity but I found this link on mums.net to a crowdfunding website to raise money for a legal team to attempt to appeal against the erasure from the medical register and also against her conviction of gross negligence manslaughter.
This is such a travesty of justice. Why on earth should one person be held accountable for the catalogue of errors that all played their part in Jack’s death?
The open letter from Dr Bawa - Garba’s consultants posted above clearly details the host of systemic failures. Why was this not taken into account, either by the jury who found her guilty of manslaughter or the GMC who asked for her to be struck off?
Reading comments on social media from those who knew her, she is a caring and hardworking doctor. My thoughts are with her and her family. Is there anything we can do as a profession to stand behind her and help?

I think much of this is relevant to all of us as GPs, not just for trainees.
Excellent article. Wholeheartedly agree with the author and also all those who have commented.
An easy read that I have recommend for patients is "The 8 week blood sugar diet" by Michael Moseley, this can be purchased online for £3-4.
Thank you. That's just what I was thinking!
