El Karout v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Medical practitioner – Appeal against determination of disciplinary committee. Had the issues of admissibility and weight been properly analysed and separated, as required by authority, the Nursing and Midwifery Council's Fitness to Practise Committee could not possibly have reached a proper conclusion that it had been fair to admit hearsay evidence. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the appellant's appeal against the decision that her fitness to practise as a midwife was impaired by reason of her misconduct and that the appropriate sanction was an order striking her off the register.
