Choudhary v General Medical Council: PC 2001

The Board heard an appeal against a final order of suspension for 12 months. It considered Madan’s case.
Held: The Board wished to reserve their opinion on the reasoning in the judgments that it was the application of Article 6 which required the IOC to weigh the doctor’s interests against the protection of the public. But this reservation related not to whether Article 6 applied, but to the importation of the need for proportionality.
