Dr Bawa-Garba wins court appeal

Statement / comment
13 August 2018

Our response to Dr Bawa-Garba's appeal win against the GMC:

Professor Wendy Burn, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists said: "Today we heard that Dr Bawa-Garba has won her appeal and will be restored to the Medical Register. 

"The case came about as a result of the death of a child. This is immeasurably sad and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. 

"We hope that the result will be that the NHS will become a place where staff and organisations are able to reflect on their errors and learn from their mistakes. This will make it a safer place for us all."
