After the storm, what now for Dr Bawa-Garba?

Comment

Jack's death was not avoidable, sadly. It was delayable, perhaps, or perhaps not, but it was inevitable that he would die in childhood, as he suffered congenital problems that made survival to adulthood extremely unlikely, and the consultants should have prepared his parents for this. Many families have suffered loss of a child, and they are no less special than Jack's family. This case does nothing to change the fact children die. It just makes it harder for everyone to live with!
