Welcome to another of our professional regulatory case law updates.
A Professional Regulatory newsflash e-bulletin from top 50 UK law firm, Blake Morgan. Dishonesty has been one of the subjects found at the centre of some important appeals; this edition will explore this theme.
Our monthly professional regulatory E-Bulletin featuring considered and detailed summaries of all the important recent case law and other sector news.
An appeal by the Professional Standards for Health and Social Care against the decision of the NMC not to pursue allegations that a Registrant was responsible for non-accidental injuries to her son and/or a failure to protect Baby A from harm.
The Divisional Court allowed the GMC’s appeal against the decision of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal (“MPT”) to suspend Dr Bawa-Garba’s registration for 12 months and substituted the sanction of erasure from the Medical Register.
This case concerns an appeal against the Respondent SRA’s Adjudication Panel, on the grounds that the panel’s finding of dishonesty were based upon a two-stage test of dishonesty, namely the objective and subjective test.
Yesterday the Court of Appeal unanimously allowed Dr Bawa-Garba's appeal and set aside the sanction of erasure, restoring the original order of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal ("The Tribunal") that she be suspended for 12 months.
This case provides guidance on whether and in what respect a registrant having retired can be taken into account when considering whether fitness to practise is impaired.
The Appellant did not have strong grounds to bring an appeal and it is of note that a significant ground was instantly rejected, as it had not been pursued via the correct route.
