Pre hearing information

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that Dr Reinecke’s care of several patients was inappropriate in relation to his interpretation of a CT scan; a failure to cease treatment when it was not working; a failure to undertake examinations; a failure to formulate or action an appropriate treatment plan and inappropriate prescribing.

It is further alleged that Dr Reinecke had inappropriate discussions with several patients in relation to his own beliefs; his terms of employment and his concerns about the impact of staffing levels on patient care.

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.
