Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 26 April 2018, Dr Mahto wrote a prescription for medication on an East Cheshire NHS Trust Out-Patient Prescription Form containing a patient identifier number and date of birth. It is alleged that Dr Mahto acted dishonestly since she knew that the prescription contained patient details, but the medication was for her own personal use.
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.

In accordance with Rule 41(2) of the General Medical Council (Fitness to Practise) Rules 2004, the tribunal may decide to exclude the public from the proceedings or any part of the proceedings, where they consider that the circumstances of the case outweigh the public interest in holding the hearing in public.
