Beard v General Osteopathic Council

Medical practitioner – Disciplinary proceedings. There had been a procedural irregularity in the decision of the respondent General Osteopathic Council's Professional Conduct Committee to impose conditions of practice on the appellant's registration as an osteopath for a period of 12 months serious enough to render the decision unjust. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appellant's appeal, held that the content and tone of the lay member's questions were more troubling than the fact that the committee's questioning had lasted longer than the cross-examination.
