The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has ordered a review into the decision by the General Medical Council (GMC) to strike off Hadiza Bawa-Garba last month. Bawa- Garba was a trainee paediatrician at the time when tragic errors led to the death of a six year old in Leicester Royal Infirmary.
The GMC initially suspended Bawa- Garba but after reviewing the case decided that she should be struck off. The GMC is the highly respected regulatory body for the medical profession and Hunt has ordered a review into how the GMC handles disciplinary issues against Doctors.
Hunt is seen as a highly controversial figure within the medical profession and has overseen massive changes to the NHS including forms of privatisation considered done by stealth. The NHS is also seen to be suffering from years of financial mismanagement and lack of proper funding as well as dealing with considerably greater numbers of patients from abroad.
Bawa-Garba has raised over £300,000 from a number of sources to fight her case and some have suggested that Hunt is using her as a tool to go on the attack against the GMC.
