R (X) v General Medical Council [2011] EWHC 3271 (Admin)

Health care regulation – fitness to practise – health cases – sitting in private – balancing exercise

There was no public interest in disclosing the details of a doctor’s medical condition as part of a voluntary erasure application before the General Medical Council’s Fitness to Practise panel. In deciding otherwise, the panel had thereby erred in law.
9 December 2011
Administrative Court
Supperstone J
(i) X, a surgeon, sought to challenge by way of judicial review the decision of the General Medical Council’s Fitness to Practise panel to hear in public his application for erasure from the register on the basis of his ill-health. Fitness to practise proceedings had been initiated against X on the basis that his fitness to practise might have been impaired due to ill health and misconduct.
