The six-year-old boy died from sepsis when Dr Bawa-Garba failed to act on blood tests.

Dr Bawa-Garba failed to act on blood tests that showed he had a kidney infection.

The mother of a six-year-old boy who died from sepsis told of her fury yesterday as the doctor who missed his symptoms was allowed to return to work without restrictions.

Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, 43, was given a suspended jail sentence for the manslaughter of Jack Adcock after a court heard she made a ‘catalogue’ of errors.

She was allowed to return to work last November subject to restrictions, but yesterday a medical tribunal ruled she no longer had to work under supervision as she was now ‘performing above the expectations for her trainee level’.

Jack’s parents, Nicky, 47, and Victor, 55, have slammed the move, saying the mother-of-four should never have been allowed to resume treating patients in the first place.

Mrs Adcock said: ‘I think it’s absolutely disgusting that she’s been able to go back to work like nothing ever happened. She killed my son.

‘We have to live with this until the day we die.

‘How does she sleep at night? She’s been given a second chance – we haven’t.’

The teaching assistant, of Glen Parva, Leicester, added: ‘She’s never shown an ounce of remorse for what she did. It’s just so wrong.

‘The whole system is corrupt – it’s neverending. I really don’t know how she sleeps at night.’

Dr Bawa-Garba initially diagnosed him with gastroenteritis and failed to act on blood tests that showed he had a kidney infection.

In 2015, she was convicted of manslaughter by gross negligence and given a two-year suspended jail term. Speaking after the hearing yesterday, Dr Bawa-Garba said she was ‘pleased’ with the latest decision.
