Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between June 2017 and May 2018, Dr Sanders worked at West Calder Medical Practice Centre when she knew that she was not on the Performers List.

It also is alleged that between September 2017 and January 2018, for the purpose of a study (‘the Study’), Dr Sanders proposed to scan patients, refer them to hospital for follow up and inform all patients scanned that it was part of the Study. It is further alleged that Dr Sanders failed to do this in relation to three patients.

When writing the report detailing the outcomes of the Study, it is alleged Dr Sanders knew, one or more of the patients had not been scanned, not all patients had been referred to hospital for follow up and that the report had not been co-authored.

It is alleged Dr Sanders amended patient medical records after completing the report, indicating they had been scanned, when Dr Sanders knew that she had not scanned the patients.

It is further alleged that her actions in relation to the above 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.
