Medical practitioner – Disciplinary panel. The appellant nurse appealed against the decision of the respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)'s Conduct and Competence Committee (the panel) by which it ordered that he be struck off. Dismissing the appeal, the Administrative Court held that the panel had been entitled to take into account certain hearsay evidence, it had been entirely open to the panel to come to the decisions it had done in respect of each of the allegations it had found proved, there had been no culpable delay on the part of the NMC, and the sanction had not been disproportionate in the circumstances.
