The Bawa Garba case is frightening. The expert witness stated that though Jack Adcock was bouncing about at 1630, though he was deemed well enough to be transferred to a general ward at 1900 by another clinical team [ not BG ], poor Jack was ' beyond the point of no return' already. Dr BG apologised in court for MISTAKING his IMPROVEMENT as recovery. Yet she was found guilty of manslaughter for ' ignoring deterioration' and ' neglect of decline' at the same time apologising for improvement. It is beyond any logic this case, never mind the fact that she was covering upto 5 doctors. How come the clinician that ordered the transfer at 1900 hours who made that clinical decision is not even mentioned. Where is the famed British Justice?
