Dr Tawana, Vongai Gondo, and Catherine Kunatsa kill two patients at heartlands with wrong dose


Notice anything about the above names? Thats right the three of them are African. The two nurses (pictured) gave five times the dose of Amphotericin at Heartlands Hospital, in Bordesley Green. But the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has decided the pair “have no case to answer” and will not go before a disciplinary board. This means they could be treating on of your family in the future.

A NMC (nursing midwifery council) spokeswoman told the families it was because the nurses are very sorry and Dr Kiran Tawana, who wrote the prescription that led to the blunder, is also not facing a hearing. This is insane! Drug errors always involve disciplinary action and if someone dies from the mistake then your pin number should be taken away by the NMC as you are obviously not fit to practice.


Mr Richards suffered from Burkitt’s lymphoma and Mr Sunner, 36, from Stetchford, was in remission from leukaemia. They died within hours of each other on Cancer Ward 19 in July 2007. Dr Tawana and two nurses all exercised their right to refuse to answer questions at the inquest of the two men in February last year. This should be no defense! These incompetents should not get away with killing our people and face no punishment.

You can write to the Nursing midwifery council here and demand justice for the two dead patients. http://www.nmc-uk.org/aArticle.aspx?ArticleID=3022
