Dr VB was accused of harassing a junior doctor.  With support, advice and representation from barristers Catherine Stock and Stephen McCaffrey, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), were persuaded that the doctor’s fitness to practise was not impaired, instead issuing him with a warning.

Important of reflection and remediation

Commenting on the case, barrister Stephen McCaffrey said:

“In this case, a finding by the Tribunal of impaired fitness to practise on both grounds of public protection and public interest could easily have been the outcome however, our client worked with us over a long period to ensure that he put himself in the best possible position and had covered the work he needed to put in place to be able to demonstrate insight.

 

“It is so important that doctors engage with us and work together with us to be able to achieve a successful outcome. This is the case for any type of allegation but even more so where allegations are about character and not simply clinical competence.”

Dr VB was delighted with the outcome and praised the work of Kings View Chambers on strategy and meticulous preparation saying:

“Regulatory hearings are a stressful experience for all.  After going through my case, Catherine and Stephen both formed a strategy that worked very well for me and I got a better than expected outcome. They both have been meticulous and represented me as per my expectations.

 

“Catherine guided me to appropriate courses and collected all the documents needed for hearing well within time whereas Stephen represented my case. I could not find a fault in both. I highly recommend them.”

I received excellent advice and a prompt service which led to a good outcome. The fee was reasonable and was fully explained upfront. I would have no hesitation either recommending Kings View Chambers to friends or colleagues.

If Carlsberg ran regulatory law firms…this would probably be one of the best regulatory law firms in the world. They are truly the X-Factor of regulatory barristers.

I have had a torrid time with the GMC, something which has overshadowed me for the past 3 years. I have no problem recommending Kings View Chambers. Straight talking, thorough and competent.
