General Medical Council
Regulating doctors, ensuring good medical practice
23 Aug 2012
GMC statement in response to the decision by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service to erase Dr Freddy Patel's name from the medical register.
Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of the General Medical Council said:
'We welcome the decision by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service that Dr Patel's name should be removed from the medical register. This means he is no longer able to practise as a doctor in the UK.
‘We asked for him to be removed from the register as the best way of protecting the public because his conduct fell far below the standards we expect of a doctor. We are therefore pleased by today's outcome.’
