Struck-off junior doctor to appeal High Court decision


Best of luck Dr Bawa-Garba. I'm truly sorry you have been put into this situation but know you are also representing the future hopes of all hard working front line doctors so it's clear that we are all behind you. If this verdict is not over turned then there will be ramifications and I suspect a lot of doctors will be leaving so let's hope common sense prevails. It's time society as a whole come cleanm on what they expect from their doctors - are we going to be the fall guys for government and public failures or will there be fairness and support for us? We can not be asked to do the impossible and then be punished for not being able to do it. And from what I've seen the GMC, CQC, NHSE, doh, BMA, Royal Colleges have known about these issues for years and what have they done???
