Dr Jane Barton claimed she was pushed to the extreme during the 1990s and claimed her work was overly demanding and therefore being the cause of the chain of events which resulted in 12 patients´ untimely deaths at Gosport War Memorial Hospital.
At the trial, Dr Barton said: "The consultants who had overall responsibility for the patients never expressed concern about my treatment and working practices." The decision was made by the self-governing fitness to practice panel, in London.
One relative, Iain Wilson, whose father died, shouted in resentment: "You should hang your head in shame." The independent panel agreed Dr Barton had caused her patients´ premature deaths, but practiced adequately for 10 years previously.
