Pre hearing information
The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between February 2011 to January 2016 (‘the Period’), Dr Reymond failed to conduct or arrange a formal assessment of Patient A’s mental capacity, or refer Patient A to a Dementia Assessment Service for assessment and management.
It is also alleged that during the Period, Dr Reymond was dishonest namely by reason of: he told Miss B that ‘Patient A had made a huge recovery and was now able to make decisions about her finances’; he wrote cheques for Patient A’s signature which were payable to Dr Reymond or others and had received one or more excessive payments from Patient A; he knew during the Period that Patient A was vulnerable; and he was not lawfully authorised or permitted to manage Patient A’s financial affairs.
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.
