Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, in or around October 1999, during a consultation with a vulnerable patient, Patient A, Dr Celikkol carried out an examination which was sexually motivated.

It is further alleged that between approximately October 1999 and August 2000, Dr Celikkol engaged in a sexual relationship with Patient A during which he inappropriately prescribed medication. Finally, it is alleged that between approximately August 2000 and December 2007, when the relationship had ended, Dr Celikkol continued to inappropriately prescribe medication for Patient A.



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.
