Jack Hardman 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 successful.

Dear General Medical Council,

I have not been able to find anything in the news regarding the GMC investigation into Doctor Freddy Patel, since August 2011, when it was stated that his suspension had been extended until December 2011.

Could you therefore tell me:
1. Is he still suspended?
2. What was the outcome of the GMC investigation?

Yours faithfully,

Jack Hardman
