Jayant Patel

Jayant Mukundray Patel (born 10 April 1950), is a surgeon who is at the centre of a 2005 scandal in which he was accused of gross incompetence while working at Bundaberg Base Hospital in Queensland, Australia. In June 2010, Patel was convicted of 3 counts of manslaughter and one case of grievous bodily harm, and sentenced to seven years in jail. In August 2012, the conviction was rescinded by the full bench of the high court and a retrial was ordered due to tainting of the jury by 'highly emotive and prejudicial evidence that was irrelevant to the case'.
