The request was successful.

Dear General Medical Council,

I have searched both the MPTS website and the medical register without success for the MPT determination of 25/1/19 and the review decision of 15/4/20 concerning Dr Kevin Newley referred to in Newley v GMC [2021] EWHC 1538 (Admin):

https://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Adm...

Please provide copies of the determination and the review decision.

Yours faithfully,

"61. The appellant sought to suggest that he is in a 'catch-22' situation because he does not accept a number of the 2019 tribunal's findings. The reality is that he provided little evidence of insight or remediation even in respect of findings he accepts, and his ability to show that he has kept his clinical skills and knowledge up to date should not have been affected by his view of any of the 2019 tribunal's findings..."

Dear J Roberts,

Thank you for your email dated 8 June 2021 requesting copies of the determination and review decision for Dr Kevin Newley (GMC reference 2602064). I have considered your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

Determinations that are published on the MPTS (Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service) website remain on the website for a period of 12 months from the conclusion of the hearing. After that, if the hearing resulted in an adverse outcome, the details of this can be accessed on the LRMP (List of Registered Medical Practitioners) only. The length of time it is available on the LRMP will depend on the outcome of the hearing.

I have attached a link to Dr Newley's LRMP entry where you can download the MPT decisions for both 25 January 2019 and 15 April 2020 under the 'Doctor's history' tab. You can access this information here: https://www.gmc-uk.org/doctors/2602064.

I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions, please let me know. If you have any issues with the way I have handled your response, please contact [GMC request email].

Yours sincerely

Henna Janghir

Possibly the lengthiest determination I have ever seen:

'612. Given the evidence of Dr Newley’s views, approach, attitude and limited insight throughout this hearing, the Tribunal has determined that conditions would not be an appropriate or proportionate sanction in Dr Newley’s case. Had there been more evidence of insight and motivation to improve, then suitably robust conditions might have been formulated to protect patient safety, which would have allowed Dr Newley to remedy his shortcomings through a period of supervised practice.'
