GMC chair apologises to doctors for ‘fear and anguish’ caused by Bawa-Garba case


Been a GP 18yrs & the treatment of Dr Bawa-Garba has shaken my faith in the justice system, the GMC & my profession. If I was 10yrs younger I’d emigrate, 10yrs older I’d retire yet I’m trapped in an understaffed & under resourced system that is unsafe for both patients & myself. I am genuinely fearful that if there is an adverse outcome on my watch there is a real risk I could be criminalised & lose my livelihood. GMC should be fighting this grotesque scenario not perpetuating it. The Truly Exceptionally Bad thing here is that Hazida has been hung out to dry for what has been an extremely traumatic event for all concerned. She should have been supported not vilified. Condolences to poor Jack’s family but this is not justice. Shame on you for not seeing the bigger picture. Your position surely now is untenable.
