    Hillis v Camberwell Health Authority 22 June 1993 HC (0 other reports)

In Hillis v Camberwell Health Authority the High Court refuses to grant an injunction preventing a complaint against a hospital doctor, which was found not to establish a prima facie case, from being raised in later disciplinary proceedings. The preliminary inquiry and conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to warrant further action did not amount to the dismissal of the case against the employee, and in any event, said the Court, the disciplinary tribunal would be best placed to decide whether matters arising from the initial complaint were admissible in the later proceedings.
