GP's outrage over father's death

A GP whose father was accidentally given a lethal overdose by a German doctor providing out-of-hours NHS care has called for changes to the service.

Dr Daniel Ubani gave David Gray 10 times too much painkiller while working for a Cambridgeshire health trust.

He was given a nine-month suspended sentence in Germany for negligence over the death of Mr Gray, 70, in 2008.

Mr Gray's son Stuart, of Kidderminster, Worcs, said the "risks" of out-of-hours doctor services should be made public.

Dr Ubani came to the UK to make extra money and told investigators he was tired after his week working in cosmetic surgery in Germany.
