Pre hearing information
The Tribunal will enquire into the allegation that, on 4 September 2017, Dr Okewole failed to adequately examine Patient A. It is further alleged that Dr Okewole initially plotted a measurement on Patient A’s growth chart without having carried out an adequate examination, and that his actions - in so doing - were dishonest.
The Tribunal will further enquire into the allegation that, on 17 November 2017, Dr Okewole carried out the removal of a left sided labial cyst (‘the Procedure’) on Patient B. It is alleged that he failed to obtain informed consent for the Procedure, failed to carry out an adequate pre-operative discussion, failed to examine Patient B before any form of anaesthetic was administered, inappropriately carried out the Procedure, failed to liaise with other members of the medical team, and failed to carry out an adequate post-operative discussion.
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.
