Michael Uberoi in twin success at the MPTS
Michael Uberoi recently concluded two lengthy Hearings in the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.
1) In GMC v Dr S, Michael represented a GP who had been convicted of injecting his wife with heroin, and driving while under the influence of alcohol. The doctor was suspended for 9 months (the GMC had argued for erasure). Michael was instructed by Simpson & Marwick, Edinburgh.
2) In GMC v Dr M, Michael (instructed by Carson McDowell, Belfast) defended a doctor who was charged with attempting to dishonestly manipulate the outcome of Patient X’s benefits assessment, by lying to the medical assessor about her knowledge of Patient X, and lying about Patient X’s symptoms. The Doctor was released from proceedings after Stage 2, after the Panel found that she was not impaired. No Warning was issued.
