    Patel v General Medical Council [2003] IRLR 316 PC (0 other reports)

Key Points

  • In Patel v General Medical Council [2003] IRLR 316, the Privy Council holds that the Professional Conduct Committee was correct to direct that a doctor, who had been convicted on eight counts of dishonestly furnishing false information contrary to the Theft Act 1968, should have his name erased from the Medical Register.
  • A finding of dishonesty lies at the top end in the spectrum of gravity of misconduct for all professional persons, including doctors.
