Pre hearing information
The tribunal will reconvene to consider whether Dr Kurz’s fitness to practise is currently impaired, following its findings at the facts stage that, between November and December 2016, Dr Kurz failed to arrange appropriate treatment for Patient A or, in the alternative, failed to record his rationale for not wanting to treat Patient A’s high level of potassium.
The tribunal will also consider whether Dr Kurz’s fitness to practise is currently impaired following his admission to pursuing an improper personal relationship with a patient, and the tribunals findings of facts that his actions were dishonest in failing to disclose this relationship to colleagues.
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.
