Medical practitioner - Disciplinary committee - Natural justice - GMC alleging consultant lying on oath to its professional conduct committee - GMC bringing charge of serious professional misconduct - Charge heard before second professional conduct committee - Consultant reprimanded - Whether breach of natural justice.
There was no apparent bias where disciplinary proceedings, which had been brought against a consultant by the General Medical Council on the basis that he had lied on oath before one of its professional standards committee, were heard by another professional conduct committee. Furthermore, as the consultant was reprimanded and not suspended, art6 of the European Convention on Human Rights was not engaged.
