Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 12 November 2013, Dr Ali consulted with Patient A and failed to carry out an adequate assessment or examination of Patient A and failed to make an appropriate referral. It is alleged that Dr Ali did not speak to or communicate with Patient A and that he did not ask the Custody Sergeant about Patient A’s medical history or behaviour at the time of his arrest.
It is also alleged that between 13 November 2013 and 18 November 2015, when giving statements in the course of investigations into Patient A’s care, Dr Ali was dishonest.
It is further alleged that between 12 April 2017 and 12 June 2017, Dr Ali was absent from his position at Care & Custody on unauthorised leave and that on 24 May 2017 and 7 June 2017, he failed to attend disciplinary hearings with Care & Custody to discuss his absence.
