Pre hearing information
The tribunal will reconvene to determine what sanction, if any, it will impose on Dr Mouton’s registration having found his fitness to practise impaired following his treatment of eight patients between 10 April 2013 and 22 March 2016.
The tribunal’s findings include Dr Mouton’s failure to adequately assess the mental state of a patient and in not making a differential diagnosis which included a psychiatric disorder and failures in his assessment, investigation and treatment of thyroid patients.
Further, Dr Mouton referred a number of patients for genotype investigations that were not clinically indicated, conducted without appropriate counselling and in which he did not obtain informed consent. Additionally, failures in his prescribing of treatments which were not clinically indicated, supported by scientific guidelines or evidence based.
