GMC strikes German GP from medical register

21st June 2010

A locum GP who delivered a fatal overdose to a patient just 12 hours after arriving in the UK from Germany has been struck off the medical register.

The General Medical Council (GMC) ruled Dr Daniel Ubani, now 67, should not be allowed to practise in Britain again after accidentally killing pensioner David Gray two years ago.

Dr Ubani has already been handed a suspended sentence in Germany for causing death by negligence through administering a tenfold overdose of painkillers.

In its ruling the GMC said it had identified “serious and persistent failing” in numerous basic aspects of Dr Ubani’s competence.

Despite the conviction and today’s ruling, Dr Ubani is still able to practise in Germany.

Commenting, health secretary Andrew Lansley admitted out-of-hours care needed “urgent reform”.

He said: “If GPs are responsible for commissioning out-of-hours care, I believe many will also decide to play an enhanced role in providing these services themselves.”
