Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on 18 March 2017, Dr Mawson assessed Patient A and failed to discuss the level, intervention and resuscitation that Patient B should undergo at the time of birth. It is also alleged that Dr Mawson inappropriately counselled Patient A that Patient B was ‘not for intervention at birth due to gestation’ and there should be no input from paediatrics.

It is further alleged that there were a number of failures by Dr Mawson in relation to the care of Patient B, including a failure to discuss with the on call consultant or Senior Obstetrician how to monitor Patient B’s heart rate during labour; a failure to contact, or request that the midwifery team contact, a Paediatrician or Neonatologist; a failure to discuss Patient B’s care with the consultant on call, a paediatrician or a neonatologist.

It is alleged that Dr Mawson altered Patient B’s medical records and that in so doing his actions were dishonest.

The above reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing.  The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.
