Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care v General Medical Council and another

Medical practitioner – Professional conduct committee. The Fitness to Practise Panel of the first defendant General Medical Council found that the second defendant medical practitioner's admitted dishonesty amounted to misconduct, but that her fitness to practise was not impaired and that it was not appropriate to issue a formal warning. The claimant Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care referred that decision to the Administrative Court. The court found that the decision not to issue U with a warning for her misconduct had been unduly lenient, given the nature of the misconduct. However, it dismissed the other grounds of challenge.
