Hospital accepts ruling
A COVENTRY hospital has announced that it will not be appealing against a tribunal which found it had unfairly dismissed Dr Raj Mattu.
He was dismissed by University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust about four years ago.
In April, a tribunal ruled he was unfairly sacked. The trust said yesterday it was not going to appeal against the decision.
The long-running saga began in 2001 when Dr Mattu exposed patient safety fears at the former Walsgrave Hospital.
Dr Mattu has met top NHS chiefs to discuss his experience.
