Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between October 2018 and November 2019, Dr Baskerville treated Patient A as the GP assigned to Patient A’s college at university (the ‘Treatment Period’). It is alleged that during the Treatment Period, Dr Baskerville failed to provide adequate and appropriate care and treatment to Patient A.

It is also alleged that during the Treatment Period, Dr Baskerville behaved inappropriately towards Patient A and that his actions were in pursuit of an improper emotional relationship and amounting to controlling behaviour. It is further alleged that his actions were sexually motivated.



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.
