A doctor represented by Hugh Barton had all charges dismissed by a Disciplinary Tribunal of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine today

The tribunal praised written submissions lodged on behalf of the doctor and stated that having considered them, they did not need to hear any evidence and would simply dismiss the allegations.

The doctor had been accused of knowingly reproducing and sharing FRCEM Final SAQ questions with others contrary to their Code of Conduct and Misconduct policy. The doctor had faced potential expulsion from the college and referral to the GMC.

Hugh Barton was instructed to represent the Doctor by Jared McNally of Clifford Johnston & Co Solicitors
