Struck-off junior doctor to appeal High Court decision


Dr Garba was let down by the Trust.The Trust has a duty of care to its employee. Covering 3 other doctors AND getting everything right is just impossible anyway. ADD a broken IT system. How can you work in acute paediatric Dept without blood tests available? AND get blamed for not acting on tests you cannot access. Dr Bawa is let down by the legal system. Apparently, a legal loophole, allowed the Prosecution to keep from the Jury 79 Trust problems because these problems were remedied afterwards. How can this be fair and just in any legal system ? It is like saying you cannot mention the fact that a drunk driver who ran over someone was drunk, because he had corrected the problem and was now sober. I am lost and bewildered by this case, especially since Dr Bawa's treatment had poor Jack better and bouncing. I cannot even now see, given the circumstances,what she could have done very differently. I cannot cover for 3 people and be physically monitoring patients in 4 different locations at the same time. Is this so called FAIR Britain. Furthermore, on reading this case, I am convinced it was the ACEI that stopped poor Jack when he was getting better and bouncing about.
