The decision is now available:

Restoration following administrative erasure

6 .Dr Goodkid’s name was erased from the Medical Register for administrative reasons on 2 September 2014, following non-payment of his GMC Annual Retention Fee. DrGoodkid has no previous regulatory findings against him in the UK.

28. Following his release, he returned to work more or less immediately. He continued to work while the criminal proceedings continued. He was acquitted of the criminal charges on 17 May 2018. He continued to work at the hospital. He accepted that he received the letter dated 16 July 2018 following a telephone call asking him to collect it. That letter called him to a meeting on 19 July 2018. He could not remember if notes were taken at the meeting.He said that the first time he had seen these notes was when they were produced by the GMC in these proceedings and he commented in evidence that the notes produced were inaccurate in certain respects.

107. Having determined that his fitness to practise is not impaired, the Tribunal went on to consider whether Dr Goodkid’s application for restoration ought to be granted.
