Guilty of GNM yet still allowed back on the register? We cannot be that desperate for Doctors.

Having read through the events of the day and the way she responded, it seems obvious she was used as a scapegoat more than anything. Sepsis is very often missed, but should not be left to one person anyway. I would trust her, having read both parts.
incredibly a few thousand juniors had a demo
basically asking if their employers wanted them to turn up for work
I might not with my own child - why tempt fate - however I think she has been poorly treated. I recall at the time that many other doctors supported her and there were far more failings in this tragic case than just her error. I expect people die every week in the NHS that possibly shouldn't but that's accepted (or rather not queried). I also feel a bit sorry for her.
Prudie, I suspect that in future, she will be far less likely to make this mistake again, than most other doctors.
" I suspect that in future, she will be far less likely to make this mistake again, than most other doctors."

Unfortunately you have no way of knowing this, it is pure supposition.

For me once struck off, stay off. No I would not like her near my grandkids.
I think sepsis is very hard to find in people with disabilities. Also i agree with pixie, now sepsis will always cross her mind
// Prudie, I suspect that in future, she will be far less likely to make this mistake again, than most other doctors.//

is called - recall bias
oh I must not make X mistake again so I will do Y
rather than - the sum of the childs needs are A so I will do B

also I must not make X mistake again so I will do A,B,C,D
even tho in a real world I know they arent needed

and for the crazies who are saying
once ctruck off - always stuck off
well she wasnt - was she - so you crazies dont have a case

( on appeal at the high court, struck off was struck out and a suspension subsituted
I think - it might have been remitted for rehearing
this is Ab so I dont care much)

( cries of "noy noy! I say "struck off" so it must have been!"
"struck off - yes yes!"
"struck off-suspension - so what is the difference!"
" I will scweam if she wasnt struck off and so she was!"
etc etc - think Brexit)

No, I wouldn't trust her.
"I think sepsis is very hard to find in people with disabilities"

Dr Spath is it?
don't have to be a doc to be able to have a thought
I'd trust her. Those responsible for reinstating her have far more information and understanding than the shock headlines and report of the Daily Mail.

If you must use acronyms in your Op at least get the letters in the right order, TTT
Scenario (true) - very popular young whizzkid doctor in a busy surgery in a Dorset town - did a home visit to my mother who had severe headache and throwing up, told her it was a bug and gave her something to ease the sickness. Next day in a coma in Poole hospital with bacterial meningitis. She never woke up. He missed it, should he have been struck off if I'd made a fuss?
I read a very extensive report about this case on the bbc website yesterday. My conclusion, she indeed is the “ scapegoat”. Many errors were made at the hospital , not just this doctors. Very sad for this family .

Hc: "f you must use acronyms in your Op at least get the letters in the right order, TTT " - errr...GNM, Gross Negligence Manslaughter it's in the link!
At first i thought the OP said GM but soon realised i read it too quickly. I did however, take a decent amount of time to assess the article, which helped with my conclusions
