After 34 months, GMC is reviewing the patient safety aspects of our complaint against Dr Barbara Hakin
Filed under: Private Eye — Dr. Phil @ 8:18 pm

The GMC wrote to me and others on 1 April 2015 stating it will be undertaking a review of the ‘patient safety’ aspects of the complaint against Dr Barbara Hakin in her role as chief executive of the former East Midlands Strategic Health Authority because the original review “may have been materially flawed” and that a “review is necessary for the protection of the public or otherwise necessary in the public interest.”

The complaint was made by Andrew Bousfield and myself on 19/7/2012. Here is the letter of response to the GMC from Gary Walker, the former NHS trust chief executive and NHS whistle-blower, whose career was destroyed in the process of raising legitimate patient safety concerns. He has not been able to secure another NHS post since. His letter outlines serious failings in the GMC investigation.
