Written submissions sought for gross negligence manslaughter review

The working group looking into gross negligence manslaughter in the medical profession has invited written submissions as the latest stage of its review.

The General Medical Council ordered the review, which will be led by Dame Clare Marx, in February amidst concerns over the Dr. Bawa-Garba case.

An online questionnaire has now opened and will provide some of the evidence that the working group will consider.

Marx explained that the panel is keen to hear from a wide range of organisations and individuals as possible, particularly doctors in training.

“Anyone with experience, expertise or an interest in gross negligence manslaughter or culpable homicide, or in what happens following serious clinical incidents, may have insight which will help us shape our review and findings,” she said.

She added that the group is keen for people to put forward views and suggestions on anything they think is relevant that is not specifically covered in the questionnaire.

Later in the year, the working group will hear oral evidence sessions and hold workshops, including specific events for trainees, patients and the public across the UK.

The deadline for online written submissions is Friday 27 July.
