LMC defies GPs' demand to stand down

The Shipman Inquiry is to publish an extra report detailing its investigations into the killer's four-year spell working at a hospital in Yorkshire.

The report will cover Shipman's time as a pre-registration house officer and senior house officer at Pontefract General Infirmary between 1970 and 1974.

Publication will come after the inquiry's fifth report in December ­ covering monitoring and disciplinary systems and complaints ­ which is expected to make recommendations on the future of the GMC.

Investigations into Shipman's spell at the hospital began following his death in January this year, after a health professional raised concerns.

The investigations are continuing and no date has been set for the report's publication.
