Human rights: Article 6 rights not engaged at doctor's disciplinary hearing

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In R (on the application of Puri) v Bradford Teaching Hospital NHS Trust [2011] IRLR 582 HC, the High Court held that rights under art.6 of the European Convention on Human Rights were not engaged in respect of the composition of disciplinary and appeal panels determining disciplinary action against a doctor. In the circumstances of the case, the hearings were not determining the doctor's ability to practise his profession, but merely his ability to remain in a particular post.
