<b>Friday 6 December:</b> Abuse of medical trust, bus bust up and racecourse objection

Published on December 5th 2008.

A HEALTH WORKER has been jailed for illegally carrying out an internal swab with a cotton bud on a 15-year-old girl. Damien Bible, 26, who worked as a health care advisor at The Parallel in Bolton, performed the swab, which would normally be performed by the patient themselves, telling the girl it was necessary. He was sentenced to three and a half years in prison and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.

A BUS DRIVER has been attacked after trying to take photos on his camera phone, of disruptive teenage passengers who refused to pay their fare. The 42-year-old driver was left with permanently-impaired vision after being repeatedly punched in the head as he drove the number 33 service along Parrin Lane in Eccles, Salford, last Friday.

A GYNAECOLOGIST who was found guilty of misconduct after he gave two women hysterectomies they didn't need, is being allowed to work in the medical profession again. Martin Quinn worked at Hope Hospital, Salford and was suspended for six months with the panel stating that his 'fitness to practise is impaired'. In recent months he has been working at St George's Hospital in London as an unpaid honorary clinical fellow.

A PUBLIC INQUIRY is set to take place over a proposed racecourse in Greater Manchester. Peel Holdings, want to speed up a decision on the £100m Salford Forest Park scheme, which is planned on land near Boothstown. However local residents opposed to the plans say the developers are not considering the impact an influx of traffic will have on the greenbelt area.
