[Name Removed] Gynaecologist

PAG made this Freedom of Information request to General Medical Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear General Medical Council,

Since 2010 Mr [name removed] [name removed] gynaecologist has been reported to General medical council a considerable amount of times by many people ranging from his reign of bullying, lack of clinical governance and ALLEGED clinical negligence and proof of the latest patients clinical negligence who personally reported Mr [name removed].

(1) why has Mr [name removed] not had his registration suspended when GMC has clear evidence of the above

(2) Why have GMC suspended other clinicians I.E [name removed] a highly respected top grade cardiologist knowing many patients are suffering without his top grade cardiac knowledge- and yet Mr [name removed] [name removed] and the proof you have since 2010 remains without suspension.

(3) Why are the GMC treating consultants differently to Mr [name removed] who still remains without his GMC restrictions- surely when cases go to trial/court the GMC realise they will have failed in their duty to protect patients knowing the above and therefore are not fit for purpose.

(4) will GMC take responsibility for the recent serious incident involving Mr [name removed] and any subsequent clinical incidents as GMC failed to investigate and suspend his registration even though they were aware.

Yours faithfully,

PAG

Dear PAG

 

Thank you for your email. This has been considered in accordance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

 

With regard to Mr [name removed], as stated in my response to your previous
request, we are unable to confirm or deny whether any complaints are held,
which did not result in a Fitness to Practise Panel hearing or
restrictions on his registration. The exemption that applies in this case
is:

 

·           Section 40(5)(b)(i) of the FOIA. This states that the duty to
confirm or deny whether information is held does not apply if to do so
would breach any of the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
We believe that it is reasonable for doctors to expect that, with regard
to complaints which did not progress to a public hearing or result in any
action upon their registration, whether or not such complaints had been
made would be remain confidential. Therefore, we believe that to confirm
or deny the existence or non-existence of such complaints against Mr [name removed]
would breach the first principle of the DPA, which requires that the
processing of personal data is fair and lawful. We believe that the
conditions in Schedule 2 of the DPA, relating to the processing of
personal data, are not met and therefore the release of this information
would be unlawful.  

 

With regard to Mr Parchure I can confirm that he is suspended from the
register following an Interim Orders Panel hearing. The publicly available
details regarding this case are available via the Medical Practitioners
Tribunal Service website at [1]http://www.mpts-uk.org/calendar/, as this
case has been listed for a hearing before a Fitness to Practise Panel
beginning on the 6 January 2014.

 

With regard to the remaining aspects of your request, you ask for comment
on various issues and as such I must confirm that we do not hold recorded
information that meets these requests.

 

You have the right of appeal against this decision. If you wish to appeal
please set out your grounds in writing and send to Julian Graves,
Information Access Manager, at [2][email address]. You also have the
right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Their contact
details are available at [3]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours faithfully
