Pre hearing information
The tribunal will reconvene to continue its consideration into the allegation that on 28 September 2017, in response to a complaint made against him, Dr Mattock created a retraction letter on behalf of a patient addressed to the Managing Director at Jersey General Hospital. Further, on 18 October 2017 during a consultation, it is alleged that Dr Mattock coerced the patient into signing the retraction letter, which was then sent by Dr Mattock with a covering letter to the Deputy Director of Operations at the Hospital. The Tribunal determined that Dr Mattock did coerce the patient into signing the letter and that his action in doing so was dishonest. The Tribunal will reconvene to consider if Dr Mattock’s fitness to practise is impaired.
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.
