EVIDENCE: Meadow v GMC [2006] EWHC 146 (Admin)

(Queens Bench Division; Collins J; 17 February 2006) [2006] 1 FLR 1161

Immunity from suit of witness extended to disciplinary proceedings, so that a practitioner giving mistaken but honest expert evidence in court could not be exposed to complaint by one of parties. However, a judge could refer an expert to the appropriate professional body if satisfied that the expert's conduct had fallen so far below what would normally be expected as to justify disciplinary action. Before doing so a witness's shortcomings would have to be sufficiently serious for the judge to believe that the expert might have to be removed from practice or subjected to conditions, such as not being permitted to act as expert witness.
