Pre hearing information


The tribunal will reconvene to consider whether Dr Nisbet’s fitness to practise is impaired, having found that, on 19 August 2020, in the Royal Court of Jersey, Dr Nisbet was convicted of the manslaughter of Ms A, on the grounds of diminished responsibility, and that on 29 August 2020 Dr Nisbet was sentenced to a treatment order, a restriction order and a restraining order, all for an indefinite period of time.



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.

Private hearings

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.
