Allegation

Dr Udoye has admitted that on 2 May 2016 he provided untrue answers to questions when completing an application form for a ‘GP Induction & Refresher Scheme’. The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that one of the answers Dr Udoye provided was known by him to be untrue and that by responding in the way that he did Dr Udoye acted dishonestly. 

Dr Udoye has admitted that between 30 August 2017 and 16 March 2018 he undertook a placement as part of the GP Induction & Refresher Scheme. The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between 4 September 2017 and 26 February 2018 Dr Udoye practised as a GP whilst on the placement when he knew that he was not eligible to do so and that his doing so was dishonest.

Dr Udoye has also admitted that between September 2017 and March 2018 he submitted ten claims to the National Recruitment Office in respect of the placement for payment towards the cost of indemnity cover, his GMC Annual Retention Fee and monthly bursary payments. The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that Dr Udoye knew he was not eligible to make those claims and that by making them his actions were dishonest.
