Pre hearing information


The tribunal will reconvene to continue to inquire into the allegation that, on 28 June 2019, Dr Konathala examined Patient A and failed to obtain informed consent or offer a chaperone. It is alleged that Dr Konathala’s actions were not clinically indicated and were sexually motivated. It is further alleged that Dr Konathala failed to adequately communicate with Patient A during the consultation and failed to record the examination.




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.
