On July 30, 2010, Mrs Blackburn was told by email from Angie Eachus at the PCT that Dr Huckstep had given notice of termination of his contract and he wished the PCT to take responsibility for the surgery, in Kendall Crescent, Oxford.
Three days later the PCT appointed Ms Pengilley to the practice but almost immediately there were problems between her and the staff over prioritising the issues.
Tensions rose over her intended preparation of a staff rota and on one occasion some patients even left without being seen because they had waited so long.
It eventually led to a confrontation in which Ms Pengilley allegedly told her: “I can’t believe that we are paying you extortionate amounts of money for you not to nurse, Loo. Can’t you just do what you’ve always been doing.”
