Pre hearing information


The tribunal will reconvene to continue its consideration of Dr Suresh’s case.

It has been found proved that, following a period of annual leave, Dr Suresh failed to return to work on 7 October 2019 and stated that she had a viral fever and was unable to travel from Bangalore to London.

It has also been found proved that Dr Suresh submitted travel documents to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust which showed that her return flight was scheduled to land on 6 October 2019. Dr Suresh had altered the travel documents knowing that they contained false information. Dr Suresh’s actions in this regard were found to be 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.
