Sons of man killed by GP arrested
THE sons of a March man killed by an out-of-hours GP who administered a fatal overdose were arrested when they interrupted his lecture at a conference.
Dr Daniel Ubani (67) was struck off the British medical register on Friday by the General Medical Council, after a fitness to practise panel hearing concerning the death of David Gray (70), of Manea, near March.
Mr Gray was injected with 10 times the usual dose of painkiller diamorphine by Dr Ubani on February 16 2008. He died hours later.
Mr Gray’s sons, Stuart and Rory Gray, protested at a medical conference where Dr Ubani was speaking in Lindau, in Germany, on Saturday.
The brothers asked Dr Ubani why he was still practising as a doctor in Germany when he had been banned from practising in Britain.
Rory Gray was charged with trespass and his brother was charged with trespass and verbal insults. Both have now been released.
Dr Ubani is still free to practise at his cosmetic clinic in Witten, Germany.
He was given a nine-month suspended sentence for causing death by negligence at a German courtmeaning he cannot be prosecuted in the UK.
He was on his first shift in the UK with out-of-hours care provider SuffDoc, when he made the fatal error.
At Friday’s GMC hearing, panel chairman Dr Brian Alderman said: “The panel is satisfied that erasure is the only means of protecting patients and maintaining public confidence in the profession.”
