TZ v General Medical Council

Medical practitioner – Professional conduct committee. The appellant appealed against the decision of the Fitness to Practise Panel (the Panel) of the respondent General Medical Council, holding that his fitness to practise was impaired and directing that his name be erased from the medical register. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the Panel had not been deprived of the ability to consider further evidence after it had adjourned to consider its factual findings on the issue of misconduct and had sent an embargoed draft of its findings to the parties, but had not yet handed down those findings. The Panel's refusal to admit the evidence of one witness had caused a real risk of injustice.
