Dear Alan


Your information request - F18/9861/CA


Thank you for your email dated 28 November 2018 asking for information
about Zholia Alemi.  We’ve considered your request under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA).


It may be helpful to provide some context about Ms Alemi.   She was given
a warning in September 2012; the concerns included that she had failed to
disclose to employers that she was under investigation by the GMC and she
had not made the GMC aware of a driving conviction.  In July 2013 a
decision was made to remove Alemi’s warning and instead refer her to a
full hearing at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal  (MPT) to consider if
her practice was impaired.  The investigation required gathering further
evidence on some of the allegations and investigating some new
information, which added to the length of the investigation. The hearing
began in May 2017.


I have attached a copy of the Record of Determinations of the MPT which
concluded in July 2017.   This is the version that appeared on the MPTS
website for 12 months, in accordance with our [1]Publication and
Disclosure policy.   The redacted sections (marked xxx) refer to
confidential personal data.   There is no public document in relation to
the warning in 2012, because it was not imposed at a hearing.  It was a
case examiners’ decision, and these decision documents are not published. 


I hope this is useful.  Please let me know if you have any queries.


Yours sincerely


Christine Abdy

In the context of further developments with Alemi, this proves just how hopeless the current system is with the GMC policing doctors while it is engaging in gross and reckless negligence itself.
