Professional Standards Authority v General Chiropractic Council and another

Medical practitioner – Professional misconduct. The Professional Conduct Committee of the first respondent General Chiropractic Council found that the second respondent had been guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and imposed a six-month suspension order, without provisions for any review. The appellant Professional Standards Authority referred the case to court. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that there was plainly evidence which supported additional allegations of dishonesty. Further, the appeal against the sanction would be allowed, primarily because of the lack of provision for review.
