Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between September 2019 and January 2020, Dr Kalkat inappropriately paid for a vulnerable patient, Patient A, to undergo private rehabilitation treatment and gave Patient A monetary gifts. It is alleged that Dr Kalkat’s actions were designed to prevent Patient A from making a formal complaint and/or taking action against Dr Kalkat and the Thames View Health Centre regarding the monitoring of his prescription medication.

It is further alleged that, in January 2020, Dr Kalkat made statements to Patient A which were untrue in an attempt to encourage him to register with another general practitioner and, in February 2020, reported to police that Patient A had assaulted him. It is alleged that Dr Kalkat’s actions were dishonest.
