Pre hearing information

Allegation

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on an occasion in June 2015, whilst Dr Lotzof remained Patient A’s registered GP at the Chase Lodge Practice (the practice), Dr Lotzof breached Patient A’s confidentiality in that she discussed Patient A’s mental health with Patient A’s father without her consent.

It is also alleged that, during April 2016, there were failings in relation to the clinical care Dr Lotzof provided to Patient A and that she failed to inform Patient A’s GP of her involvement in Patient A’s care.

It is further alleged that on 25 November 2014 and 25 September 2015, Dr Lotzof made arrangements for Patient B and Patient C respectively to undergo medical terminations at the practice.

It is alleged that that Dr Lotzof retrospectively amended Patient C’s notes and failed to make clear that her amendment was retrospective. It is also alleged that Dr Lotzof told a colleague on more than one occasion that the Practice was registered with the Care Quality Commission to undertake terminations. It is alleged that Dr Lotzof’s conduct in this regard was dishonest.
