Dr Gnanapragasam Anton Joseph Selvanathan v The General Medical Council: PC 11 Oct 2000

Decisions of the Professional Conduct Committee of the GMC should now be accompanied by explanations. Earlier practice of issuing a bare decision had been superseded by general practice in decision making bodies, and also by detailed rules governing the practice of the committee. Fairness required reasons to be given so that the disciplined doctor could make an informed decision on whether to appeal.
