Our NHS is in the grips of its worst crisis in years with patients being urged to stay away from A&E, yet disgraced heart specialist Doctor Gohar Rahman is still on the payroll despite serving a 12 month ban for assaulting his teenage daughter.
Whilst his generous salary is still being paid in full, the trust will no doubt be struggling to fund a replacement, meaning our hospital will be under even more pressure and patient care will consequently suffer as a result.
Doctors such as Gohar Rahman, who are unfit to practice and essentially struck off should have their pay suspended until they are cleared and ready to return to work so replacement staff can be hired to take their place.
