Recruitment crisis forces GP collaborative to hand back contracts on six practices


It will be awarded to Trusts at 25 to 50% more funding per patient. Such funding would have stopped the closure in the first place anyway. The Bawa Garba case is exceedingly worrying. It is not understandable. Dr BG was convicted for I quote 'Neglecting decline before transfer to another ward[ general ward]' But poor Jack was unresponsive on admission. He got better. That is why he was transferred to a general ward. He was transferred by another clinician who also thought he was better. He did not decline. If he, he would not have been transferred to a general ward but to ICU. Irrespective of all other parameters and circumstances, Dr BG was convicted for a child who actually IMPROVED under her care and died after being given an ACEI. In my opinion and of many many doctors who have read this in detail, the judgement as it stands is logically wrong.
