Pre hearing information
The tribunal will reconvene to consider what, if any, sanction to impose on Dr Ahmed’s registration having made its determination that Dr Ahmed’s fitness to practise is impaired by reason of misconduct, as a result of his failure to maintain adequate medical records, accessing patient records in order to send Facebook friend requests, contacting a patient via WhatsApp and sending her messages that were sexual in content in order to pursue a personal and sexual relationship with her, and continuing to do so despite the patient no longer responding to the messages.
This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.
All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.

In accordance with Rule 41(2) of the General Medical Council (Fitness to Practise) Rules 2004, the tribunal may decide to exclude the public from the proceedings or any part of the proceedings, where they consider that the circumstances of the case outweigh the public interest in holding the hearing in public.
