Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between May 2016 and November 2016, Dr Eigbogba dishonestly signed a number of Mental Health Act documents in the name of another doctor when he knew that he did not hold responsible clinician status to sign such documents.

It is also alleged that, on 10 July 2017, Dr Eigbogba accepted a caution from Lincolnshire Police for signing paperwork in the name of another when he was not permitted to do so.



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.
