Dr Lucia Gibson – campaign

Lucia needs our help 

 

In 2007 Lucia explained to us that she raised concerns with her PCT over monies amounting to £60,000. 

 

Imagine the shock of then finding herself of being falsely accused of so-called ‘ghost’ patients and has had her practice closed by NHS England.

 

In the criminal case brought against Lucia the Judge criticized the PCT & stated that he agreed with the Jury that they should not bring a similar case to his court in future.

 

Yet here we are again in 2015 at the high court, tax payer’s money being used to continue the persecution of an innocent Doctor, worth reminding you all this Doctor was cleared of all charges even the General Medical council stated that this Doctor had suffered a “Manifest Injustice”

 

NHS England are now pursuing Lucia for approx. £600,000 pounds part of the costs for running her practice after suspension on false allegations. She was later cleared of all allegations. The GMC admitted it was a “manifest injustice” yet still she is pursued.  

 

We are looking for legal representation on a PRO BONO basis for this case – Lucia is like many of us out there cleaned out financially by NHS legal expenses.

 

Lucia came to us for help at short notice we advised, and as a result Lucia won a adjournment at the high court earlier this week, the case will be re listed at the high court in November.

 

When NHS England took over they spent considerably whilst running the practice by bringing in agency staff at at exorbitant rates for a single handed run practice, they themselves created the deficit.

OPEN LETTER

 

 

Dear Mr Hunt,

 

 

I write to you on behalf of Dr Lucia Gibson, it is my understanding that Lucia has previously approached you, that you indicated that Lucia’s case should be investigated as a matter of public interest. 

 

This does not appear to have happened, Instead Lucia continues to be persecuted through the high court using tax payers money in order to claim £600,000 .

 

These costs accrued by NHS England as a result of running Dr Gibson’s practice whilst suspended. Dr Gibson was cleared fully of all allegations, lost her GP practice in the process,  It appears Dr Gibson’s practice was run down by the incompetent business practices of NHS England Surrey.

 

In the criminal case brought against Lucia the Judge criticized the PCT & stated that he agreed with the Jury that they should not bring a similar case to his court in future.

 

Yet here we are again in 2015 at the high court, tax payers money being used to continue the persecution of an innocent Doctor, worth reminding you this Doctor was cleared of all charges even the General Medical council stated that this Doctor had suffered a “Manifest Injustice”

 

The employment tribunal hearing concluded that there was evidence of racial discrimination in this case.

 

So my question to you is are you going to allow the persecution of this good doctor , along with the continued waste of tax payers money being used to employ a legal team in order to continue that persecution? 

 

It is, in short a disgrace, and one of the most appalling cases of injustice against a NHS worker that I have been asked to take a look at. 

 

I trust in the circumstances this will be investigated independently as a matter of urgency.
