Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that between July 2008 and February 2016, whilst involved in the care and treatment of eleven patients Dr Zia failed to obtain appropriate clinical history during consultations, inappropriately prescribed medicine, kept inadequate medical records and failed to provide safety netting advice.

It is further alleged that between 02 December 2015 and 23 February 2016, Dr Zia failed to provide adequate tutorials and supervision to the new trainee doctor putting patient safety at risk. It is further alleged on 31 May 2017 during the appraisal meeting Dr Zia failed to admit that she was currently under investigation by the GMC.

It is also alleged that in 2017 Dr Zia took locum work whilst having an undertaking not to take any further work until approved by the Responsible office.
