Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, following a complaint made to NHS England (NHSE) by Dr A on 11 May 2018, Dr Keane failed to cooperate with an NHSE investigation. It is also alleged that following a referral to the GMC on 24 October 2018, Dr Keane failed to complete and return a work details form having been requested to do so by the GMC on a number of occasions.

It is further alleged that between May and September 2018 Dr Keane behaved unprofessionally towards colleagues. Finally, it is alleged that Dr Keane breached conditions imposed by the Performers List Decisions Panel.



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.
