'It's a disgrace': Mother of Down's syndrome boy who died of sepsis slams 'disgusting decision' to allow doctor convicted of his manslaughter to practise again

A paediatrician who was convicted of gross negligence manslaughter after the death of six-year-old boy has today won her appeal over the decision to strike her off.

Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba fought a decision made in January by two High Court judges to substitute erasure for the lesser sanction of a year's suspension imposed by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal (MPT) in June last year.

Their ruling followed a successful appeal by the General Medical Council (GMC), which argued that suspension was 'not sufficient' to protect the public or maintain public confidence in the medical profession.

Little Jack Adcock, of Glen Parva, Leicestershire - who had Down's Syndrome and a heart condition - died at Leicester Royal Infirmary in 2011 after he developed sepsis.

Is it me, or do people get the impression, our legal system is becoming a joke?
