Pre hearing information


Dr Chandra was erased from the medical register in March 2009 for disciplinary reasons.

His application for restoration to the Medical Register was granted by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal at a hearing which concluded on in March 2017.

In August 2018 the Court of Appeal allowed an appeal by the GMC against the Tribunal’s decision. In an addendum to the judgment (dated 26 February 2019), the Court remitted the matter to a Medical Practitioners Tribunal for reconsideration in light of its judgment. The Court of Appeal confirmed that Dr Chandra would remain on the Medical Register pending the remitted hearing.

A Tribunal will consider the remitted matter from 26 June 2019.


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.
