Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between September 2017 and September 2018, Dr Lorenz submitted prescriptions in the names of patients when the prescriptions were not for the patients. It is alleged that his actions were dishonest.

It is further alleged that on 19 February 2019, at Wrexham Police Station, Dr Lorenz accepted a caution for fraud by false representation.

Bydd y tribiwnlys yn ymchwilio i'r honiad fod Dr Lorenz, rhwng Medi 2017 a Medi 2018, wedi cyflwyno presgripsiynau yn enwau cleifion pan nad oedd y presgripsiynau ar gyfer y cleifion. Honnir bod ei weithredoedd yn anonest.

At hynny, honnir ar 19 Chwefror 2019, bod Dr Lorenz wedi derbyn rhybudd am dwyll trwy ddweud anwiredd yng Ngorsaf Heddlu Wrecsam.

Disgwyliwn i rannau o'r achos gael eu clywed yn breifat.

We expect parts of this case to be heard in private.



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.
