Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire 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. The letter stated that the patient did not wish to pursue the complaint. 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. It is alleged that Dr Mattock knew that the information he had provided was untrue and that in doing so 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.
