Pre hearing information


The tribunal will enquire into the allegation that, over the course of five consultations and two laser procedures that took place between September 2016 and April 2017, Dr Van Der Hoek failed to provide adequate care to Patient A. It is alleged that Dr Van Der Hoek failed to take an adequate history from Patient A, failed to perform adequate examinations, failed to refer Patient A for further assessments, failed to correspond appropriately with Patient A’s GP, failed to keep adequate records, and failed to obtain adequate consent.



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.
