Eastwoods successfully defended a hospital doctor at a Fitness to Practise Panel of the MPTS, which concluded that the doctor’s deficient performance demonstrated during a performance assessment in 2011 had been remedied by the actions she had taken since then. Therefore, the Panel considered that her fitness to practise is not currently impaired by reason of deficient professional performance. In light of the Panel’s conclusion at the impairment stage the Panel did not consider that any useful purpose would be served by imposing a warning. Eastwoods, healthcare regulatory solicitors.
