Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on or around 21 March 2013 and 14 January 2015, Dr Olatigbe acted dishonestly by submitting appraisals in which he made untrue declarations, to the effect that he had not been subject to any investigations by the GMC or an NHS Trust.

The tribunal will also inquire into the allegation that in 2015 in the course of his applications to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and when attending a meeting with the CQC, Dr Olatigbe acted dishonestly by making untrue statements regarding GMC investigations and his financial status at the time. In addition, the tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between October 2014 and December 2015, despite him not having secured registration with the CQC, Dr Olatigbe undertook regulated CQC activities.
