Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, in October 2018, Dr Malik had an inappropriate relationship with a college student on a work experience placement under his supervision (‘Miss A’). This allegedly included Dr Malik sending inappropriate text messages, transferring money into Miss A’s bank account and having sexual contact with her in a hotel room. It is alleged that his actions were sexually motivated.

It is further alleged that, in August 2019, Dr Malik dishonestly misled a sales representative arranging a medical conference to believe that Miss B, a medical student on placement under his supervision, was a junior doctor, so that she could attend the conference with him. It is also alleged that Dr Malik’s conduct towards Miss B was sexually motivated.



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.
