Sanctions by EC regulators

Her Honour Judge Belcher, sitting as a High Court judge, held that:
1. It is not necessary for the Fitness to Practise Panel of the General Medical Council to specify reasons for imposing a decision or sanction different to that imposed by a body or bodies in another Member State. To require them to have to give detailed reasons for departing from the decision of another body would require investigative steps far beyond their remit, powers and competencies and is unnecessary in any event.
2. The personal obligation on a doctor under the regulations of the General Medical Council to advise them of a foreign criminal conviction is not discharged by the duty of a foreign regulator to so inform them.
