Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, between July 2004 to November 2019 Mr Desai failed to provide good clinical care to Patient A.

It is further alleged that in a letter, dated 21 November 2017, Mr Desai asked Patient A’s GP to perform blood tests, which was inappropriate, as the tests requested are used are for diagnosing advanced metastatic cancer and monitoring cancer treatment.



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.
