Brew v General Medical Council

Medical practitioner – Disciplinary panel. The appellant doctor admitted falsifying clinical assessment entries on his e-portfolio. Before the General Medical Council's Fitness to Practise Panel (FTPP), the appellant, it was said, on the advice of the barrister representing him below, initially denied that his conduct had been dishonest. The appellant later admitted that his conduct had been dishonest. The FTPP erased the appellant from the medical register and he appealed. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the FTPP had been entitled to reach that decision on the evidence before it, even if another FTPP might, possibly, have reached a different view.
