Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between 2018 and December 2019 whilst he was the Medical Director at BestCare Diagnostics Limited (BestCare), Dr Khan failed to monitor and review the service that BestCare was providing. It is also alleged that Dr Khan was unable to provide the West Sussex NHS Clinical Commissioning Group/Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) with accurate information to assist with their Clinical Harm Review (CHR).

It is further alleged that, as a result of Dr Khan’s failures, 64 of the patients assessed by the CCG during the CHR were found to have suffered physical and/or psychological harm, of which 29 had experienced moderate to severe harm.



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.
