The Glories of the NHS:

A TOTTENHAM GP who examined Baby P eight days before his death failed to spot the toddler was probably suffering from eight broken ribs, the General Medical Council heard on Tuesday.

St Pancras Coroner’s Court was told that Dr Kirmang Dabagh, an on-call doctor for Camidoc, agreed with Mr Hosie’s diagnosis of an allergic reaction and told him over the phone to stop taking the tablets. But the GP failed to prescribe alternative medication. Critically, Mr Hosie was not suffering from an allergic reaction, but a rapidly worsening infection and required antibiotics. He continued to deteriorate and died the following day.

Sorry I have no idea what is going on with my fonts and blogger. Working on getting this fixed.
