Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 25 March 2013, at the Court of Crotone, Italy, Dr Ussia was convicted of death by negligence and reckless behaviour, an offence which would constitute a criminal offence if committed in England and Wales. It is alleged that Dr Ussia was sentenced to one year in prison (suspended).

It is further alleged that on 2 January 2013, Dr Ussia submitted an application for registration to the General Medical Council and failed to disclose relevant information. In addition, it is alleged that on 14 October 2013 Dr Ussia failed to disclose relevant information to a potential employer and 7 April 2015 he failed to disclose relevant information to his employer. It is alleged that 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.
