Dishonest psychiatrist Temi Ogbe-Uwen GMC ref. no. 5176946

We're waiting for J Roberts to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear General Medical Council,

Dr Temi Ogbe-Uwen was found to have acted dishonestly and it was determined her name be erased from the Medical Register.

MPT Decision (2 May 2019):


In a High Court judgment dated 20 December 2019 the MPT determination was found to be sound – she acted dishonestly and erasure from the Register was an appropriate sanction:


Paragraph 8 of the judgment reads as follows:

'On 22 March 2017 the Registrant sent an email to MIND stating there were, ......”no issues with regards to my medical indemnity/malpractice insurance cover. I have already forwarded my solicitor’s letter of legal cover for me if there are any issues when practising. I have been with this solicitor for years and always submitted their name as legal cover. I tried explaining to Ella but she didn’t understand. This same legal cover by my solicitors was accepted by GMC for my revalidation”.'

I am particularly interested in the final sentence of paragrah 8:

"This same legal cover by my solicitors was accepted by GMC for my revalidation."

Please provide all information you hold to confirm the truth of this claim.

Yours faithfully,

J Roberts

Dear J Roberts


Reference: IR1-25681133311


Thank you for your e-mail, below. 


I can confirm that we hold information in respect of Dr Ogbe-Uwen’s
revalidation but that I consider that the following FOI exemption applies
to the release of this: 


The exemption


Section 40(2), by virtue of section 40(3A)(a)


This exemption applies where the information is the personal data of a
third party and where releasing the information would breach any of the
principles relating to the processing of personal data listed at Article 5
of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this instance
disclosure would breach the first principle, which requires the processing
of information to be fair, lawful and transparent. I do not believe that
any of the legal bases for processing listed at Article 6 of the GDPR are
met and therefore giving you the information would be unlawful.


Your right to appeal


I’m sorry I could not meet your request. If you would like to appeal
against the decision please set out your reasons and write to the
Information Access Manager at [1][GMC request email]  If  such an appeal were
unsuccessful, you would have the right of a further appeal to the
Information Commissioner, the regulator of the Freedom of Information Act
2000. The Information Access Manager will provide more details about this
further appeal route if applicable.



Kind regards

Mark Ellen
