Patel suspension: The real question is why he was appointed in the first place

Ian Tomlinson’s family have responded to the news that the GMC have suspended pathologist Freddy Patel for 3 months after he was found guilty of misconduct over a number of separate post-mortems.

Julia Tomlinson spoke on behalf of the family today:

“Today’s decision confirms that the GMC do not think Patel is fit to practice and has been an obstacle to the truth in a number of cases. It is heartbreaking to us that he was involved in Ian’s case and the real question for our family is why with his track record he was appointed in the first place. We look ahead to the inquest now and hope that we will finally get some answers.”
