Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between 2009 and 2017 whilst employed by Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (‘the Trust’), Dr Kubaisi claimed for both additional annual leave and locum shift payment via Medacs on 11 separate occasions. It is alleged that Dr Kubasi knew that she was entitled to claim either additional annual leave or locum shift payments for these 11 dates, but not both. It is further alleged that Dr Kubaisi over-claimed locum shift payments, and claimed for work which she knew she had not undertaken. In addition, it is alleged that on one or more occasions in December 2016 Dr Kubaisi amended the Trust’s theatre books whilst subject to an ongoing Trust investigation.

It is further alleged that, prior to 27 February 2017, Dr Kubaisi was charged with fraud under section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006. It is alleged that Dr Kubaisi failed to notify the GMC that she had been charged with this offence.

It is alleged that Dr Kubaisi’s actions as outlined above were dishonest, and that her fitness to practise is impaired by reason of misconduct.



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.
