Dr. Amanda Burke:

I want to reiterate the point Ms O'Connor made that Kerry was a very specific case and everybody is very upset and regretful about what happened there. However, it involved a non-consultant hospital doctor who was not on a training scheme and not a qualified specialist on the specialty register for child and adolescent care.
