Pre hearing information


The Tribunal will continue to inquire into the allegation that between October and November 2015 Dr Salman treated Patient A and failed to provide good clinical care. It is alleged that Dr Salman cancelled Patient A’s laparotomy, did not communicate effectively with colleagues regarding Patient A’s treatment plan, and did not discuss Patient A’s treatment plan with their family.

It is alleged Dr Salman failed to set out clearly the conservative management plan to ensure that Patient A was adequately monitored and failed to maintain adequate records for the treatment of Patient A. It is further alleged that on 4 December in a meeting Dr Salman gave an account of events that contradicted the account he provided to HM Coroner dated 7 March 2016. It is alleged that the statements made in Dr Salman’s first or second account were untrue. 


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.
