Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on 31 July 2021, Dr Navaratnam consulted with Patient A and failed to provide adequate clinical care. It is alleged that Dr Navaratnam’s failings related to treatment, history taking, investigation, examination, consent, communication, safety netting and record keeping.

It is also alleged that Dr Navaratnam failed to perform the procedure in a clinically appropriate environment and dishonestly recorded findings from a physical examination of Patient A that had not taken place.



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.
