Agency that hired death doctor Daniel Ubani is handed fresh NHS deal


An agency that supplied the NHS with a doctor who killed a patient with a drug overdose has had its contract renewed.

Dr Daniel Ubani, 66, a German-registered medic originally from Nigeria, gave tragic David Gray 10 times the safe dose of diamorphine.

Mr Gray, 70, who had kidney stones and was in pain with colic, died shortly afterwards in February 2008.

Take Care Now, the agency that sent Dr Ubani is being investigated over its services in five care trust areas.

But NHS Cambridgeshire is extending its contract to provide them with out-ofhours doctors for two months. Lib Dem Cllr Geoff Heathcock said it was "worrying". The trust said it was to allow time for a "rigorous process" to procure service providers.
