Pre hearing information
The tribunal will continue its inquiry into the allegation that, in a letter to Dr A, dated 24 May 2011, Dr Ahmed described the circumstances of his 2008 GMC hearing in a way which he knew to be false as the description did not accurately set out the reasons for his referral to the GMC. It is alleged that his actions were dishonest.
It is also alleged that Dr Ahmed made dishonest representations in an application form submitted to NHS Lothian in or around June 2011, and during a subsequent interview in July 2011.
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.
