Bijl v The General Medical Council: PC 2 Oct 2001

(Professional Conduct Committee of the GMC) The appellant appealed an order removing him from the register. The board will not usually be in a position to assess the disciplinary issues heard by the Committee. In this case there were findings of serious failings by the Respondent, but some four years later, he had been able to work without complaint, and in the circumstances, removal from the register was not necessary.
