Doctor sues QEH
A LEADING GYNAECOLOGIST, Dr Wayne Welch, has filed a High Court injunction against the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) for suspending him from carrying out his duties at the Martindales Road medical facility.
Welch, a former consultant, has charged that the QEH had no authority to prevent him from attending to his patients at the hospital and that such a decision was also a breach of the principles of natural justice.
The injunction also claims that his suspension was discriminatory treatment on the basis that other people attached to the hospital had been criminally charged but were never suspended.
He additionally accused the QEH of exercising its discretion unreasonably.
