Lavis v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Medical practitioner – Professional misconduct. The appellant registered midwife appealed against the respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council's Conduct and Competence Committee's finding of impairment by misconduct and suspending her from practise for four months. The Administrative Court found that some of the Committee's findings on dishonestly had not been satisfactory or satisfactorily expressed. It appeared to have approached the issue of dishonesty in an irregular way, such as to render its finding in that important respect unsustainable. That part of the appeal would be allowed and remitted for reconsideration.
