A doctor who was sacked after emailing Bible quotes to colleagues has lost a tribunal appeal.
Dr David Drew, a former clinical director at Walsall Manor Hospital, was
dismissed in December 2010. His appeal against unfair dismissal and religious discrimination was rejected
by an employment tribunal.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust said it welcomed the verdict, but regretted the
case had gone as far as the tribunal. The appeal on Saturday backed an original decision, rejecting his religious
discrimination claims, made by a hearing in April 2012.
Dr Drew, a consultant paediatrician from Sutton Coldfield, said he had been told
to keep his beliefs to himself after including prayers and Christian
references in emails.
