A doctor who was convicted over the death of a six-year-old boy has lost her appeal. Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba was convicted, along with agency nurse Isabel Amaro, of the manslaughter of Jack Adcock at Nottingham Crown Court in November last year.
Jack, who had Down’s syndrome and a heart condition, died at Leicester Royal Infirmary in February 2011, hours after being admitted with sickness and vomiting. He was treated by Doctor Hadiza Bawa-Garba and nurse Isabel Amaro. Doctor didn’t resuscitate him as she had him confused with another patient Bawa-Garba argued before three senior judges in London that her trial was unfair because the judge misdirected the jury. But Sir Brian Leveson ruled : ‘We have come to clear conclusion that none of the grounds of appeal are, in fact, arguable’. Jack’s parents, Nicky and Vic, who live in Glen Parva, Leicestershire, were not in court to hear the decision.
