GP who ran $600k ‘report-writing factory’ avoids jail

UK doctor exaggerated a medical claim for whiplash and has been given a suspended sentence

A UK GP who ran a “report-writing factory” has avoided going to jail over one of his expert medical reports about a taxi driver’s whiplash injuries from a car accident.

Last year, Dr Asef Zafar was given a six-month suspended sentence for contempt of court over his role in a medicolegal report that embellished the taxi driver’s injuries.
