Dr David Sellu was a surgeon with a distinguished record extending over 40 years, but in 2010 a patient died under his care in a private hospital, resulting in Dr Sellu's GMC suspension, criminal prosecution and prison sentence. The conviction was later appealed and shown to be an unfair trial with tinges of racism, but the damage had already been done. In this podcast, Dr David Sellu talks openly and frankly to Dr Raj Persaud about his ordeal, and about his fight to create a fairer, more accountable medical justice system.
