Ian Barker, MDU senior solicitor, said:
'We welcome the GMC's announcement of the terms of reference for the gross negligence manslaughter review and will contribute fully.
'Too many doctors are being investigated and for those who are investigated, the process needs to be swifter and fairer. We believe there are a number of changes that could be made to the current law to achieve that.
'We have given oral evidence to Sir Norman's review panel and we will follow this with a full written submission.'
