2018: The year in review

The controversies and injustices highlighted the importance of caring for doctors

This year had a narrative — not about the various funding sagas, the political messes or the My Health Record, but a much more personal one.  It was about the way doctors cared for themselves and each other given the tough, often dysfunctional, systems in which they work. Much of the narrative was present in one of the very first stories of the year: the news that a UK paediatrician, Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, had been struck off for life two years after her conviction for manslaughter over the death of a six-year-old patient, Jack Adcock. We look back at what made the news in 2018. Take our quiz here to test your recall.
