Pre hearing information


The tribunal has found proved that, in December 2014, Dr Abbasi consulted with a patient by telephone and failed to take appropriate urgent action in that he did not ensure that he directly delegated the medical assessment of the patient to Dr B.

The tribunal also found proved that, on one or more dates in April and May 2015, Dr Abbasi added a patient to his appointment list, changed the appointment status and made a corresponding entry into the patient’s medical records.

Further, the tribunal found proved that Dr Abbasi stood very close to Dr B in May 2015, and grabbed Miss C’s head with both hands, dug her fingers into her head and shook her head up and down in September 2017.

The tribunal will reconvene to continue its consideration of the case.



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.

Private hearings

In accordance with Rule 41(2) of the General Medical Council (Fitness to Practise) Rules 2004, the tribunal may decide to exclude the public from the proceedings or any part of the proceedings, where they consider that the circumstances of the case outweigh the public interest in holding the hearing in public.
