Medical practitioner – Disciplinary proceedings. The Medical Practitioners Tribunal's decision to proceed with disciplinary proceedings in the respondent's absence had been unimpeachable. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appellant General Medical Council's appeal, held that the judge had failed to apply the relevant principles and, as a result, she had come to demonstrably the wrong conclusion in allowing the respondent's appeal against the tribunal's decision which had resulted in his erasure from the register.
