Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 16 June 2017, Dr Banerjee consulted with Patient B and failed to medicate the patient without delay. It is also alleged that she made retrospective entries in Patient B’s clinical records which did not accurately reflect her prescribing, were not marked as retrospective entries and were untrue.

It is alleged that on 17 July 2015, at her Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) meeting, Dr Banerjee falsely claimed that she had not worked with any other Consultant Geriatricians who could provide a report on her clinical performance at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. It is alleged that at an ARCP meeting on 24 November 2015 Dr Banerjee falsely claimed that she had not worked under Consultant E’s supervision when she knew she had and knew that she had received negative feedback from Consultant E. It is also alleged that Dr Banerjee’s actions were dishonest.

It is further alleged that, during ARCP meetings on 24 November 2015 and 22 June 2016, Dr Banerjee’s communication with the Panel was inappropriate.
