Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that during a medical consultation at the Market Square Surgery on 18 March 2020, Dr Roach inappropriately asked Patient A for her personal telephone number. It is also alleged that later that day, Dr Roach visited Patient A for a home visit despite the fact that a home visit had not been requested, during which he massaged Patient A. It is alleged that Dr Roach’s conduct was sexually motivated.

It is further alleged that Dr Roach failed to document the home visit upon returning to the surgery.



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.
