Victoria Ward and Panorama
The link is to a Panorama
programme tonight about a family court case.
This case was unusual because the Ward's were allowed to get a second opinion. Normally the parents are refused a second opinion and lose the case.
It should also be noted that quite large expert fees are paid to those people who diagnose child abuse in children. Those fees are generally not available if people don't think that the children have been abused. This creates a major conflict of interest which I have raised with the GMC.
If anyone thinks that is a fair and just system I am amazed.
