Pre hearing information

The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on January 2018, Dr Norrish incorrectly carried out a medial uni-compartmental knee replacement surgery ('the wrong surgery') on 'Patient A' which was not clinically indicated. The tribunal will also inquire into further allegations that Dr Norrish falsified Patient A's records, performed a revision surgery which was not clinically indicated, and made a number of untrue and false statements.

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.

Private hearings

In accordance with Rule 41(2) of the General Medical Council (Fitness to Practise) Rules 2004, the tribunal may decide to exclude the public from the proceedings or any part of the proceedings, where they consider that the circumstances of the case outweigh the public interest in holding the hearing in public.
