Dr Jenny Vaughan DAUK’s aLaw and Policy Officer speaks to the BMJ and explores why there is a disproportionate referral rate of ethnic minority doctors to fitness to practise processes.
We are so proud of our Law and Policy Officer and Founder of Manslaughter and Healthcare Dr Jenny Vaughan for being awarded the BMJ Editor’s Award for speaking ‘Truth to Power’. As well as being a Consultant Neurologist for the past 14 years, Jenny was also the medical lead for the successful overturning of the gross negligence manslaughter conviction of Mr David Sellu. Alongside DAUK Jenny campaigned for Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba’s successful appeal and supported her for a number of years prior to this.
DAUK would like to congratulate Jenny on this very well deserved award!
