Watchdog backs down on GP ‘laptop’ case after doctor backlash

The UK General Medical Council spent $80k prosecuting the doctor for alleged dishonesty over obtaining the device

A GP who was suspended after using “one inappropriate word” to get access to a work laptop is on track to clear her name after the UK medical watchdog backed down.

Almost $80,000 was spent prosecuting Manchester-based Dr Manjula Arora after she told the IT department at her after-hours GP workplace she had been “promised” a laptop by another doctor when one became available.
