Pre hearing information

Allegation

The Tribunal will inquire into an allegation that, on 20 November 2017, Dr Singh submitted an application to the GMC to restore his licence in which he did not disclose that the GMC had suspended him from the Medical Register on 16 April 2002.

It is further alleged that on 15 January 2019 Dr Singh submitted a National Performers’ List Application (‘NPL1’) in which he failed to disclose his suspension, previous removals from the List, and previous refusals to include him on the List. It is alleged that Dr Singh signed the declaration in the NLP1 in the knowledge that the information he had provided was untrue.

It is further alleged that in meetings held with Dr A, Dr Singh gave misleading information in relation to his suspension and the contents of the NPL1 form.

It is alleged that Dr Singh’s actions were dishonest.
