Dr Alfred Sparman is fighting back.
He has filed a suit in the Supreme Court to overturn the Barbados Medical Council’s decision not to register him to practise as a cardiologist, and is seeking damages for loss of profit and disruption of his practice.
The suit, filed on July 5, accuses the council of acting “recklessly and without consideration” for Sparman’s practice because for nearly a year it has not dealt with two applications relating to his registration before it.
Yet the council “took no steps following the publication of the lists (of Persons Registered as Medical Practitioners and Medical Practitioners Registered as Specialists and Their Specialties) in the Official Gazette to inform the public, firstly, that it had undertaken to the court to take no action against me under the act pending the final determination of my two outstanding applications; and secondly, that the said applications have not yet been determined”.
