Pre hearing information


The tribunal will reconvene to continue its inquiry into the allegation that, on 1 November 2017 at Folkestone Magistrates’ Court, Dr McKenzie was convicted of driving after consuming more than the prescribed limit of alcohol and was subsequently sentenced to 120 hours of community service and disqualified from driving for 24 months. The tribunal will also inquire into the allegation that Dr McKenzie failed to notify the GMC of this charge or conviction without delay.

The tribunal will also consider the allegation that on one or more occasions, between 2015 and 2018, Dr McKenzie mentally abused ‘Dr A’.



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.

Private hearings

In accordance with Rule 41(2) of the General Medical Council (Fitness to Practise) Rules 2004, the tribunal may decide to exclude the public from the proceedings or any part of the proceedings, where they consider that the circumstances of the case outweigh the public interest in holding the hearing in public.
