A CHILDREN’S doctor who made a series of “potentially life-threatening” blunders will have to work to strict conditions for another year.

Dr Kiran Patwardhan admitted a series of errors relating to his treatment of three children at the Sick Kids hospital.

The medic was made subject to 11 conditions by a fitness to practise panel in Manchester last year for 12 months.

Since last year’s hearing he has not been allowed back to work in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and has instead been working in general paediatrics.

The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard there had been a breakdown in relations between Dr Patwardhan and senior NHS Lothian management and extended the restrictions for another year.
