Regina v The General Medical Council, ex parte Arpad Toth, Dr David Jarman Interested Party: QBD 29 Jun 2000

A complaint to the General Medical Council should be heard in public unless there was some particular and pressing circumstance. Openness was required to maintain the confidence of the public in the profession, and complainants had a legitimate expectation of a public investigation. Where a practitioner continued in practice, the screeners should be reluctant to disallow continuance of a complaint where there was any doubt at all about the need to proceed.
