What further information have we discovered?

Have you established any further information about Zholia Alemi’s work history?

We know that she worked in a range of locations throughout the 20 years from being granted full registration until we suspended her from the medical register in 2017. And that we know she worked as a locum for a significant period of time

We also know that she sat and passed the Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists exam in 2003. At the time, this was a two-part exam with written and clinical parts. The MRCPysch, as it is known, is awarded to those doctors who have completed at least three years training in psychiatry and who pass the two-part test. The royal college subsequently recommended her for entry to our Specialist Register in 2012 in psychiatry with learning disability. This meant that the royal college was satisfied she had demonstrated the knowledge, skills and experience required to be appointed as a substantive consultant in the NHS.
