Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between 2014 and 2017, Dr Martos Martinez described himself as being a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London when he was not.

It is further alleged that, in or around March 2019, in an application form to Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust, Dr Martos Martinez failed to disclose that he was subject to a GMC fitness to practise investigation and that he had been dismissed from his previous position at Burton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

It is alleged that Dr Martos Martinez’s actions were 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.
