Pre hearing information


The tribunal will reconvene and continue to inquire into the allegation that Dr Ahmedsowida acted dishonestly when submitting an Inter Deanery Transfer Request to the head of Northern Ireland Medical and Dental Training Agency (NIMDTA) School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. It is also alleged that Dr Ahmedsowida acted dishonestly when submitting two job applications.

It is alleged that Dr Ahmedsowida failed to follow the instructions of a supervising colleague whilst employed as an ST1 at Worcestershire Royal Hospital (the Hospital). It is further alleged that Dr Ahmedsowida failed to disclose to a colleague that prior to the procedure he had not performed a caesarean section for two years prior to undertaking the procedure.

It is also alleged that Dr Ahmedsowida provided misleading information to the Hospital and NIMDTA, and that his actions were 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.
