Bill Wilson represented two Radiologists (Husband and Wife) who had both been referred to a Fitness to Practice Hearing (FtPH), after having been earlier represented by other lawyers who submitted Rule 7 responses. These were both rejected by Case Examiners and the matter was referred to a full Fitness to Practice Hearing scheduled to last for many weeks After careful consideration of the voluminous of papers, it became clear that the Case Examiners had not correctly interpreted certain data (PACS/RIS) which was pivotal to the allegations. Further detailed submissions were lodged on behalf of both Doctors which resulted in the GMC agreeing to conduct a Review under Rule 28 and consequently persuaded to conclude the matter with no further action.

Bill Wilson commented:

"It is always difficult to come on-board after other lawyers had been previously involved. The substance of the allegations involved very technical and complex data, which had to be considered in a very tight timeframe. Thankfully I was able to demonstrate that the Case Examiners had incorrectly understood the data and as a consequence was able to ‘right a wrong’ to spare both clients from what invariably would have been a very lengthy, costly and stressful hearing."

Our clients commented:

"We cannot thank Bill enough for the hard work he put into our case. He was able to grasp the complex facts which surround imaging very quickly and succinctly rectified the misunderstanding by Case Examiners. What a result! Without doubt this relieved a huge degree of pressure from both of us."
