Hayat v General Medical Council

Medical practitioner – Professional conduct committee. The appellant general practitioner had been deprived of the opportunity to give evidence and to challenge the evidence of the regulator's witnesses at the fact-finding stage of disciplinary proceedings. In allowing his appeal against the Medical Practitioners Tribunal's finding of misconduct and imposition of a sanction of erasure, the Administrative Court, held that the tribunal ought to have given careful consideration to the question of whether and to what extent the appellant's medical condition would affect his ability to take part in the proceedings.
