R (on the application of Rudling) v General Medical Council

Medical practitioner – Professional conduct committee. Matters concerning the claimant general practitioner's probity had plainly amended the existing allegation of impairment as to record-keeping and had not amounted to a new allegation. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of the decision of the defendant General Medical Council's Investigation Committee, considering that it was in its powers to admit new evidence and that it was fair to adduce it, even though it had not formed the basis of a letter or the claimant's response.
