Dr Renjith Nair, a General Practitioner, was accused of failing to fully examine a seventeen day old baby after he had died at the Royal Preston Hospital in 2009 the following day.
Dr Nair was cleared of all allegations at a Fitness to Practice hearing held at the General Medical Council earlier this week. The panel found that the baby’s parents had been ‘understandably’ confused and were mistaken as to the consultation which Dr Nair provided.
The panel stated that it was satisfied that Dr Nair’s note of the consultation was “a true and accurate record” and made clear that Dr Nair would have sent the baby for immediate medical attention at the hospital if he had considered it necessary at the time.
