New language test for foreign doctors welcomed

The son of a Cambridgeshire man who died after he was treated by a foreign GP has welcomed confirmation of tough new language tests for doctors. The government says from April all doctors will have to be on an approved national list.

German doctor Daniel Ubani was employed to care for NHS patients in 2008 when he administered a fatal dose of painkiller to David Gray while on his first shift as a locum in Cambridgeshire.

The out-of-hours service which employed him didn't know his poor English meant he'd been refused work elsewhere in the UK.
