Doctor suspended in Baby P probe

The doctor who failed to spot Baby P's injuries has been suspended from practising, the General Medical Council (GMC) has said.

Dr Sabah al-Zayyat, a locum paediatrician, examined Baby P at St Ann's Hospital in London on 1 August 2007, two days before he died.

The GMC is currently investigating the doctor's conduct in connection with the 17-month-old boy.

He died in Haringey, north London, after suffering months of abuse.

The GMC had already placed temporary conditions on the registration of Dr al-Zayyat at a hearing in August 2008 which meant she could only work under supervision.

'Miserable and cranky'

But those conditions have now been upgraded to a full suspension.

The GMC said it would hold a full public hearing if its investigation merited it.

If it proceeds to that stage it can then either strike Dr al-Zayyat off the medical register, suspend her, put conditions on her registration or simply not impose any penalty.

Dr al-Zayyat, who qualified in Pakistan and worked in Saudi Arabia before coming to Britain in 2004, spotted bruises to his body but decided not to carry out a full systemic examination because the boy was "miserable and cranky".
