GMC to continue appealing FTP decisions until legislation is changed


The GMC was following the conviction. The conviction was based on the fact [ among other equally bad statements] that the expert witness said ' DR BG ignored ' obvious deterioration in Jack's condition'. BUT, Jack actually improved 1] pH O/A 1045 = 7.08 [ moribund] 2]pH at 12 md = 7.24 [ laughing, drinking juice] 3] so active at 1500, the nurse stopped observations 4] Bouncing about at 1630 5] Improved so much and so well at 1845, transferred from CAU to ward 28/29, by another clinician [ unknown !! in a manslaughter case] 6] ACEI given at 1900 7] Collapse and died at 1945 Yet, in spite of this complete improvement the EW said Jack deteriorated. Furthermore he said that Jack was past the point of no return by 1700, even though he was bouncing about!! And to cap it all, he says he has NO EVIDENCE after 1430 !!! This is grotesque evidence, under oath !! If I were Dr BG, I would be reporting to GMC.
