John Bowers QC Acts for the GMC in Successful Defence Against Racial Equality Claim

John Bowers QC acted for the General Medical Council (GMC) in their successful high court defence against a claim by the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) that the clinical skills assessment (CSA), which includes role-playing assessments is unlawful.

At a judicial review, Mr Justice John Mitting said that the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) was neither racially discriminatory nor in breach of its public sector equality duty.
