The Health and Social Care Committee will be holding an evidence session to consider the implications for patient safety of the application of the law on gross negligence manslaughter, and professional regulation in such cases on 16th October 2018.
Unfortunately, despite The Doctors’ Association urging the Committee to hear from grassroots doctors, only a few select individuals have been invited to give oral evidence, and no written evidence has been invited.
We are writing to Dr Sarah Wollaston in the strongest terms to protest this omission.
If your MP is on the Health and Social Care Committee (listed below), please write to them and urge them to reconsider and widen the scope of their inquiry.
Sarah Wollaston, Totnes
Luciana Berger, Liverpool Wavertree
Ben Bradshaw, Exeter
Lisa Cameron, East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow
Rosie Cooper, West Lancashire
Diana Johnson, Kingston Upon Hull North
Johnny Mercer, Plymouth Moor View
Andrew Selous, South West Bedfordshire
Derek Thomas, St Ives
Martin Vickers, Cleethorpes
Paul Williams, Stockton South
