I know what Mr. Reid is saying but what I am saying to him is that here was a situation involving a junior doctor over a period not of 12 months but of more than four years. I am asking whether it is possible there could be a very well qualified medical consultant in a particular area in a situation where there are no checks and balances. I am not convinced those checks and balances are in place.
