Walker-Smith v General Medical Council  EWHC 503 (Admin)
Healthcare - Reasons - Erasure from register - Conduct panel

07 March 2012
(1) The Claimant, Professor Walker-Smith, challenged the General Medical Council (GMC) panel's conclusion finding that he had been guilty of serious professional misconduct during a clinical investigation, and as a result of this, his name should be removed from the medical register. The Claimant's case was that the investigations were clinically sound and did not amount to professional misconduct.
