Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that during an interview at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in October 2017 Dr Tsakiris failed to mention that an investigation was being undertaken by Southend University Hospital NHS Trust into concerns regarding his practice. Furthermore, that Dr Tsakiris failed to declare that his duties at the hospital had been restricted. It is alleged that Dr Tsakiris’ actions were dishonest.

It is also alleged that in April 2019 Dr Tsakiris underwent a GMC assessment of the standard of his professional performance. It is alleged that his professional performance was unacceptable in the areas of maintaining professional performance; assessment of patients’ condition and clinical management, and a cause for concern in the area of relationships with patients.



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.
