Southall back on medical register

5th May 2010

The Appeal Court has decided the paediatrician Dr David Southall is free to practise medicine and he has been placed back on the medical register.

Dr Southall was struck off the register in 2007 by the General Medical Council after he told a mother she had killed her 10-year-old son. Lord Justice Leveson, who gave the court ruling, said: "I am far from convinced that the public interest is truly served by a rehearing of the limited factual allegation that was made in this case, turning on the precise language used 12 years ago."
