Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on 9 July 2021 Dr Savu inappropriately amended Patient A’s medical record and suggested to Dr B that he retrospectively amended Patient A’s medical record. It is alleged that that Dr Savu knew patient A had died on 7 July 2021.

It is further alleged that at subsequent meetings with Dr C, Ms D and Ms E, Dr Savu made statements that were intended to avoid criticisms of his care and treatment of Patient A and of his actions as Dr B’s supervisor. It is alleged that Dr Savu’s actions in amending Patient A’s medical records were dishonest.
