Pre hearing information


The tribunal will enquire into the allegation that, during consultations with three patients and their families between March and August 2017, Dr Chowdhury failed to provide good clinical care by creating an unwarranted sense of concern without clinical justification, providing information in the patients’ records that he knew to be untrue, suggesting private medical treatment and failing to arrange referral for NHS investigation and/or treatment. It is alleged that at all material times Dr Chowdhury was Managing Director and shareholder of Meras Global Ltd and Meras Healthcare Ltd, and that his actions in relation to the three patients were both financially motivated and 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.
