Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between 26 June and 8 August 2017, Dr Pandian failed to report for duty at his NHS Trust. It is alleged that he did so without seeking permission or informing the Trust, and when he had an active GMC warning in respect of similar conduct.

It is further alleged that, between 2016 and 2017, Dr Pandian failed to repay money he owed to the Trust for an incurred debt and salary payments to which he was not entitled. It is alleged that his actions in this regard were dishonest.

It is further alleged that, following four requests, Dr Pandian failed to provide the GMC with a completed Work Details Form.


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.
