Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on or around 4 October 2017, Dr Harley dishonestly claimed to have attended a mandatory training session when he had not.

The tribunal will further inquire into the allegation that in January 2018, Dr Harley carried out a Central Venous Catheter ('CVC') procedure after falsely telling the person supervising the procedure that he had previous experience of performing it. It is further alleged that Dr Harley made dishonest statements regarding his experience of performing CVC procedures at a later meeting.

It is also alleged that Dr Harley failed to maintain an accurate trainee logbook despite knowing this was a compulsory part of his training.



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.
