Dr Bawa-Garba was in a 'perfect storm', says supervisor ahead of appeal verdict


"and failed to spot from blood tests that Jack was in shock, or review chest X-rays that indicated he had the chest infection." - is this correct? My understanding is that he was commenced on adequate fluids and the CXR was reviewed and antibiotics prescribed. I have re-read details of this case in great depth and I am still at a loss to identify where there was clinical negligence and certainly nothing to warrant a conviction of manslaughter. If I am being thick can somebody elucidate for me? BTW I am thrilled that this lovely doctor has won her appeal against the GMC ruling. She must now appeal against the manslaughter verdict and clear her name completely in what has been a terrible miscarriage of justice!!
