Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on 14 April 2018, at a conference of The Alcock Society, Dr May presented a poster in such a way as to give the false impression that he was one of the original authors of the poster and/or directly involved in the work referred to.
It is further alleged that on 22 April 2018, in response to a request by his Supervising Consultant Dr A to provide a copy of the poster presented at the conference, Dr May sent an email attaching a different poster knowing that this would give Dr A a false impression. It is alleged that Dr May’s actions were dishonest.
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.
