The Welsh Conservatives are calling for ‘fundamental reform’ of the way the General Medical Council handles disciplinary and negligence cases.

The calls come after the death of Ellie-May Clark, who died after her GP refused to treat her because she was late to an emergency appointment.
Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies, raised the issue this afternoon with Jane Hutt AM who was standing in for Carwyn Jones during First Minister’s Questions.
