Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, in September 2017, Dr Mawhinney consulted with Patient A and requested and/or allowed them to provide a urine sample in the consultation room behind a curtain whilst he remained in the room. It is alleged that despite Dr Mawhinney subsequently being advised by Dr C that this was inappropriate and should never be done again (or words to that effect), he inappropriately requested and/or allowed Patient B to provide a urine sample in the same manner in February 2018. It is alleged that Patient B was vulnerable because of her age.
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.
