It is alleged that, on 6 January 2021, Dr Robbins was sentenced to 14 months' imprisonment for the assault and an admonition for the threatening behaviour. It is also alleged that Dr Robbins failed to notify the GMC that she had been charged and convicted of these offences.

It is further alleged that, on 29 July 2021 at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, Dr Robbins was convicted of two counts of assault for which she was sentenced to a total of 23 months' imprisonment.
