Dr Phillip Hussey

I didn't know where to put this. If it's in the wrong place I apologise. There was another case of a 29 year old mother dying of a DVD in 2011. Dr Hussey diagnosed cramp. To be fair, others also misdiagnosed this case. I think he is now retired lol.

The wife of a man who died after a Leicestershire doctor failed to detect his heart condition says she hopes such a tragedy will never be repeated.
Pamela Clarke's husband, 57-year-old Ray, of Syston, died on holiday in Spain in September 2004. He had visited Dr Philip Hussey at Syston Health Centre complaining of chest pains three times in the month before his death.

After carrying out an investigation the General Medical Council (GMC) said there was "an indication that Dr Hussey's fitness to practice was impaired", and it has agreed a series of "undertakings" with him.
Mr Clarke's widow Pamela, 65, said: "I would have preferred it if he had been struck off but they are not prepared to go that far. At last we have some sort of result, which is better than nothing. Hopefully what happened to my husband will never take place again.

"To lose your partner is so traumatic, and having had the case to fight has given me a reason for carrying on."
The "undertakings" include being supervised in the workplace and undergoing a personal development plan designed to address the "deficiencies" in Dr Hussey's "assessment, investigation, treatment, referral and record keeping".

The GMC concluded its investigation in July. Details were released last week by the family's solicitor Mehmooda Duke.
Ms Duke, of Moosa-Duke Solicitors in Leicester, said: "It is very reassuring the GMC takes complaints from members of the public seriously, investigates them thoroughly, and takes steps to improve the standard of care provided by doctors who are registered to practice in the UK. This may help to avoid tragedies, such as occurred in Mrs Clarke's case, being repeated."

Mr Clarke died of a heart attack in his hotel room in a resort near Malaga.
His family were awarded an undisclosed amount of money in January last year after Dr Hussey admitted he should have referred his patient to hospital instead of giving him indigestion medication.

A letter from Dr Hussey's solicitor said if the patient had been referred to a clinic or hospital during the second or third visit and appropriately treated then "the fatal event would, on balance of probability, have been avoided".
Dr Hussey has previously expressed his "deepest sympathy" to Mr Clarke's family.

A Syston Health Centre spokesman said Dr Hussey did not make comments about individual cases due to patient confidentiality. There is no specific period for which the conditions will be in place.
Dr Hussey's compliance with them will be reviewed once a year by GMC case officers.

I'm not sure where you're going with this but it might be helpful for people on the forum to provide a link to Dr. Hussey in relation to Madeleine.

Thank you for doing the link, I forgot that. Someone commented at some point that the McCann's GP's didn't say much. Dr Hussey didn't seem to have ever treated Madeleine; probably just as well! I guess my point is that being a doctor, as we all know, is not a recommendation of anything. They are just human beings like the rest of us. They 
make all the same mistakes as everyone else. 


The McCann's present GP, however, said 'As Kate and Gerry are general practitioners I never had any doubt about their capacity or mental abilities as individuals or as parents to their three children'  http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/RICHARD_SCHOFIELD.htm


Obviously doctors don't doubt other doctors.

G- unit, I assume you meant DVT and not DVD. Although now I am a little scared to watch a film tonight just in case.

Coloboma

Post by saratoga on 03.01.15 22:28

'There is no treatment for coloboma at present. A child with coloboma will receive specialist care at hospital during the early years to monitor the effect of the coloboma and their eye health. The frequency of these checks will depend on the child's needs. Children who have coloboma can be more at risk of glaucoma (increased eye pressure) and retinal detachment. There are treatments for both of these conditions which the hospital would explore with you.
If your child's eye health is stable and no further complications appear then they will usually attend an eye test every six months up to the age of seven years and then annually. These eye tests will usually take place with an optician or orthoptist.'
https://www.rnib.org.uk/eye-health-eye-conditions-z-eye-conditions/coloboma

'Also, I never had doubts regarding the physical or psychological well-being of the children. Madeleine was seen by the duty doctor when born and by our nurses during the routine vaccinations. If there had been cause for concern in any of the children, it would have been brought to my attention, and this did not happen.'   From Dr Hussey's statement to PJ.

So a coloboma either is or isn't a cause for concern. Just take your pick.

A coloboma should have been investigated, certainly. It can be nothing to worry about, but it can also be very serious (see Cat Eye Syndrome) 
https://www.rarediseases.org/rare-disease-information/rare-diseases/byID/1085/viewAbstract

It can be a genetic disorder but another possible cause is exposure to alcohol during fetal development, but of course that wouldn't happen with a doctor would it lol.

Dr Hussey would not mention this in his statement anyway due to patient confidentiality. As he wasn't the most efficient doctor in the world he  probably never even noticed it - if he ever saw Madeleine that is. He never mentioned seeing her.
