Pre hearing information

The tribunal will continue its inquiry into the allegation that on 2 February 2018, whilst suspended from the List of Registered Medical Practitioners following a decision of a Medical Practitioners Tribunal, Dr Akram submitted an application to work with NHS Professionals. Further, that Dr Akram failed to disclose that she had been and still was suspended by the MPT and knew this at the time of submitting the application. It is alleged that in so doing, Dr Akram’s actions were dishonest.

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.
