Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between January 2016 and June 2018, whilst working as a GP Partner at the Grove Medical Centre, Dr Vasistha recorded one or more consultations in patient records where consultations had not taken place. It is alleged that at the time of recording the consultations, Dr Vasistha knew that the Practice would receive payments for achieving targets associated with the consultations.

It is further alleged that in June 2018, Dr Vasistha deleted one or more of the consultations from patient records in an attempt to conceal his conduct as set out above. It is alleged that Dr Vasistha’s conduct was dishonest.



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.
