GP suspended over laptop request sparks ‘grave concerns’ over treatment of BAME doctors

Dr Manjula Arora, an overseas-trained doctor from India who has 30 years exemplary service, was referred to the General Medical Council (GMC) by Mastercall Healthcare, a Stockport-based social enterprise organisation providing a range of “out of hospital” healthcare services across the North West of England, following the incident in December 2019.
