‘We are sorry for the impact the Bawa-Garba case has had on the profession’


The case of Ellie May Clarke, a five year old girl who died from an asthma attack in Wales a few years ago, has been filling my post bag over recent weeks. The GP was essentially somebody that we felt had shown insight for remediation and who we decided shouldn’t be struck off or suspended and we put a warning on the doctor’s record. GMC.. ARE YOU SAYING THAT BME DOCTORS OR DR BAWA GARBA ....are not showing insight for remediation.. COME ON... Your statement is troubling and without merit... In BAWA Garbas case the trust covered up 17 or so organisational failings and indeed prevented the issues being presented to court.. on the basis that the issues had been addressed since the tragic death Is this the sort of insight to remediation you are talking about?? What sort of remediation would you expect from Dr GARBA Turn up to shift ... only Doctor when there should be 4 IT system failure.... SORRY IN FUTURE I WILL REFUSE TO WORK IN SUCH EXTREMELY RISKY SCENARIOS WHERE I WILL SHOULDER ALL FAULT FOR ANY ADVERSE OUTCOME
