Medical practitioner - Professional misconduct - Suspension - Claimant doctor being subject of complaint - Panel of defendant General Medical Council imposing interim suspension order - Claimant applying for removal of interim suspension order - Whether order excessive.
Medical practitioner Professional misconduct. The claimant doctor, a consultant in genito-urinary medicine, was suspended from practice for 18 months in April 2012 by order of the Interim Orders Panel (the panel) of the General Medical Council. The allegations against him included claims that he had transported human blood samples improperly and had requested a member of staff to amend records of a patient to cover for him, which he admitted. He appealed to the Queen's Bench Division, on the grounds that the suspension was excessive. The court held that there was no real risk to members of the public in H's continuing to practice, and that the interim suspension order would be lifted.
