GMC sanctions

The approach of the High Court to reviewing sanctions imposed by the Fitness to Practice Panel of the GMC were summarized by Laws LJ (with whom Chadwick LJ and Sir Peter Gibson agreed), in the case of Fatnani Raschid v General Medical Council [2007] EWCA Civ 46, 
"As it seems to me the fact that a principal purpose of the Panel's jurisdiction in relation to sanctions is the preservation and maintenance of public confidence in the profession rather than the administration of retributive justice, particular force is given to the need to accord special respect to the judgment of the professional decision-making body in the shape of the Panel."
And see Chyc v General Medical Council [2008] EWHC 1025 (Admin).
