Doctor's treatment of elderly was 'hazardous'21st August 2009
The General Medical Council has ruled that the conduct of a doctor in the treatment of 12 elderly patients was inappropriate and possibly potentially hazardous.
It is now to decide whether Dr Jane Barton was guilty of serious professional misconduct in the light of a series of allegations about her work at Gosport War Memorial Hospital in Hampshire in the 1990s. The hearing has been adjourned to allow more evidence to be heard. Dr Barton left the hospital in 2000 but still practises as a GP in Gosport.
