Struck-off doctor wins appeal to work again after crowdfunded campaign

Health and Social Care Editor

A junior doctor who was struck off over the death of a six-year-old boy has won her appeal to work again. Dr Hazida Bawa-Garba was convicted of gross negligence manslaughter after the death of Jack Adcock, who died after developing sepsis.

Dr Bawa-Garba’s appeal was crowdfunded by medics who said they hoped the case would prevent other doctors going through the same ordeal. Today she said she was pleased with the outcome but was sorry for her role in what happened to Jack.
