Baby P doctor suspended by GMC (BBC News)

A doctor who failed to spot Baby P’s broken ribs and back during an examination has been suspended by the General Medical Council (GMC).
Dr Sabah Al-Zayyat missed the injuries days before the 17-month-old boy died in a blood-splattered cot following abuse from his mother, her boyfriend and their lodger Jason Owen.
The GMC said its Interim Orders Panel had decided to suspend Dr Al-Zayyat’s registration.
“Investigations are ongoing and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage,” it said.
Baby P died in a blood-spattered cot in Haringey, north London, in August last year despite 60 visits from the authorities over eight months.
His mother, her boyfriend and Owen, 36, will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on December 15 for causing or allowing the child’s death.
Earlier, Barnardo’s chief executive Martin Narey warned that child poverty was linked to offending and had to be tackled.
The former Prison Service boss suggested Baby P could have become “feral, a parasite, a yob, helping to infest our streets” if he had lived.
Mr Narey used Baby P as an example of a disadvantaged child who may have gone on to offend and be locked up as a result of his background.
“It is very significant that last week, I, along with the whole country, was shocked by the tragic events surrounding Baby P,” he said.
“It saddens me that the probability is that, had Baby P survived, given his own deprivation, he might have been unruly by the time he had reached the age of 13 or 14.
“At which point he’d have become feral, a parasite, a yob, helping to infest our streets. The response to his criminal behaviour would have been to lock him up – but we believe these children deserve better.”

The Latest Up Dates To This Article!

The prime minister has said any necessary changes will be made to the system in the wake of the abuse by a father who raped his two daughters.
Gordon Brown said people were “outraged” by the “unspeakable” abuse perpetrated against the women.
His comments follow demands by MPs in Sheffield to know how the father’s actions went undetected by agencies.
The 56-year-old Sheffield man was jailed for life after fathering nine children by his daughters.
An independent review is investigating the contact health professionals, police and social services had with the victims.
During Prime Minister’s Questions at the House of Commons, Gordon Brown said: “People will want to know how such abuse could go on for so long without the authorities and the wider public services discovering it and taking action.
“If there is a change to be made in the system and the system has failed, we will change the system.”
Meanwhile, Sheffield MPs Nick Clegg and David Blunkett have called for the inquiry to uncover any failings in the system.
The father, who admitted 25 rapes, was sentenced to a minimum term of 19-and-a-half years by judge Alan Goldsack QC, who said the case was the worst he had seen in 40 years.
The attacks led to 19 pregnancies. Nine of the children were born, two of whom died on the day of their birth.
The other 10 pregnancies were miscarried or aborted.
‘Big questions’
Nick Clegg, Lib Dem leader and Sheffield Hallam MP, said: “I can’t imagine a better definition of being evil than torturing your own children in this abusive way.”
Asked by BBC News “Where were the medical professionals? Where were the social workers?”, Mr Clegg answered: “Yes, we don’t know. Those are the big questions that need to be asked.
“The other questions are for people at school. The girls went to school. Did they not notice anything?
“The girls were in and out of hospital – did they not notice anything?
“They’ve got someone from outside to look at it independently and make sure that we know if there have been any major failings in the system that those are brought to light.”
Labour’s Sheffield Brightside MP and former Home Secretary David Blunkett said: “Those who at least made an effort to do something should not be the ones who are pinpointed – it is those who did not who should examine their conscience.”
Sheffield Crown Court heard the abuse started when the women were pre-pubescent.
The father moved the family around, including Sheffield and Lincolnshire, to keep them isolated and to avoid detection.
The court heard that none of the doctors, nurses or social workers the victims saw looked into why they kept getting pregnant.
Social services criticised
The case ended two weeks after Haringey Council in London came under fire over the death of Baby P.
The 17-month-old boy died in August last year in a blood-stained cot after months of abuse, despite 60 visits from authorities over eight months.
Children’s Secretary Ed Balls has ordered an inquiry into Haringey’s child welfare services.
Baby P’s mother, her boyfriend and her lodger are due to be sentenced on 15 December after being convicted of causing or allowing the child’s death.
James Baird, representing the father in the Sheffield abuse case, criticised social services in both Sheffield and Lincolnshire, where the family had lived.
He said there had been many hospital appointments where staff had “accepted the complainants’ case that the father of their children was not their father”.
Jayne Ludlam, director of young people’s services Sheffield City Council, confirmed a Serious Case Review had been launched, to be led by former civil servant Professor Pat Cantrill.
Peter Duxbury, director of children’s services at Lincolnshire County Council and chairman of the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board, said since the events child protection systems had been improved.

His comments follow calls by MPs in Sheffield who have demanded to know how the father’s actions were able to go undetected by official agencies.
The 56-year-old man was jailed for life on Tuesday after fathering nine children by the two women.
Gordon Brown said people were “outraged” by the “unspeakable” abuse.
An independent review is investigating the contact health professionals, police and social services had with the victims.
During Prime Minister’s Questions at the House of Commons, Gordon Brown said MPs and the public were “outraged” by the abuse.
Meanwhile, Sheffield MPs Nick Clegg and David Blunkett have called for the inquiry to uncover any failings in the system.
The father, who admitted 25 rapes, was sentenced to a minimum term of 19-and-a-half years by judge Alan Goldsack QC, who said the case was the worst he had seen in 40 years.
Nick Clegg, Lib Dem leader and Sheffield Hallam MP, said the inquiry needed to establish the role of professionals and social and medical workers in the case, and whether there had been failings in the system.
He said: “I can’t imagine a better definition of being evil than torturing your own children in this abusive way. Some of the details are just heart-rending.
“Of course the question is how on earth did something like this happen without someone noticing?”
Asked by BBC News “Where were the medical professionals? Where were the social workers?”, Mr Clegg answered: “Yes, we don’t know. Those are the big questions that need to be asked.
“The other questions are for people at school. The girls went to school. Did they not notice anything?
“The girls were in and out of hospital – did they not notice anything?
“That’s why I spoke last night to the leader of Sheffield City Council, to the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police and this all needs to be looked at completely independently.
“That’s the crucial thing. They’ve got someone from outside to look at it independently and make sure that we know if there have been any major failings in the system that those are brought to light.”
‘Avoid detection’
Labour’s Sheffield Brightside MP and former Home Secretary David Blunkett said the inquiry needed to focus on agencies that could have intervened but did not.
He said: “Those who at least made an effort to do something should not be the ones who are pinpointed – it is those who did not who should examine their conscience.”
Sheffield Crown Court heard the abuse started when the women were pre-pubescent.
The father moved the family from village to village in rural locations, including Sheffield and Lincolnshire, to keep them isolated and to avoid detection.
The court heard that none of the doctors, nurses or social workers the victims saw looked into why they kept getting pregnant.
‘Significant changes’
James Baird, representing the defendant, criticised social services in both Sheffield and Lincolnshire, where the family had lived.
He said: “What is clear from the case is that the complainants and the children have attended many, many hospital appointments, but none of the medical experts have sought to probe these circumstances, and accepted the complainants’ case that the father of their children was not their father.”
Jayne Ludlam, director of young people’s services at Sheffield City Council, confirmed a Serious Case Review had been launched, to be led by former civil servant Professor Pat Cantrill.
Peter Duxby, director of children’s services at Lincolnshire County Council and chairman of the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board, said since the events, child protection systems had been improved.
“Significant improvements have been made to ensure the safety of children in Lincolnshire,” he said.
“In line with Lord Laming’s recommendations in 2003, there has been a wholesale reorganisation of children’s services and the establishment of a Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board which provides effective management and ensures proper standards for the safety of children are maintained.
“We will be co-operating with Sheffield in the completion of an independent review.”
