DP v General Dental Council

Dentist – Professional misconduct. The Administrative Court granted the claimant dentist's application seeking review of a warning decision issued against him by the defendant General Dental Council's investigating committee. The court held that s 27A(11) of the Dentists Act 1984, which set out the newly-created power to conduct such reviews, should be construed as conferring upon registrants a right, from 13 April 2016, to seek review of a warning, provided that registrants applied within two years of a warning being made. Accordingly, the claimant was entitled to have the warning decision listed for review.
