The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between 23-25 November 2016 and on 9 January 2017 Dr Rakoczy underwent a GMC assessment of the standard of his professional performance. It is alleged that his professional performance was deemed to be unacceptable in the area of maintaining professional performance. It is also alleged that his professional performance was deemed to be a cause for concern in the areas of assessment, technical/operative skills, relationships with patients and working with colleagues.

The tribunal will also inquire into the allegation that on 16 September 2017 Dr Rakoczy undertook an assessment of his knowledge of English, namely the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test, and achieved scores in the areas of listening, reading, writing and speaking which were below the acceptable scores. It is also alleged that Dr Rakoczy’s overall IELTS score was below the acceptable overall score.
