The decision is now available.

Not impaired.

'9. Following her review with Patient A, Dr Waters altered Patient A’s Consent Form by adding ‘haemorrhage’, ‘return to theatre’, and ‘repair of injury’; and Clinical Notes, by adding ‘pre op’, ‘previous 5x [sic] did not relief pain at all’ and ‘aware of risks of haemorrhage, infections infancy [sic], return to theatre’.

10. Dr Waters knew that any retrospective changes to Patient A’s Consent Form and Clinical notes should have been clearly indicated but they were not.

15. The 2019 Tribunal concluded that Dr Waters’ dishonest conduct fell far below the standards expected, was contrary to GMP, the Trust’s guidance, and breached fundamental tenets of the medical profession. The 2019 Tribunal considered that failing to identify (whether inadvertently or deliberately) when entries are made in clinical notes has the potential to contribute to patient harm, though it did not do so in this case. However, it considered that such behaviour affects public confidence in the medical profession.'
