Suspended for Requesting a Laptop ‘wrongly’?

DAUK has written to the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), jointly with the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO), to demand that the case of Dr Manjula Arora is urgently reviewed. Dr Arora was suspended for a month by the GMC for ‘lying’ in her application for …. a work laptop. Which she needed for her work as a GP. This, it seems, was enough to warrant medical suspension. DAUK wants to know why this even got as far as the GMC, let alone resulted in a suspension – for yet another doctor with overseas training.
