Former Ulverston doctor to face practise hearing

A FORMER Ulverston doctor was set to face a fitness to practise hearing today.

Dr Henry Chichester Vaughan Edward Hart is due to appear before a panel from the General Medical Council in Manchester.

A spokesman for the GMC said: “The panel will inquire into the allegation that Dr Hart, whilst employed as a locum general practitioner in between 2004 and 2008, at the Bayside Family Practice (based in Ulverston Community Health Centre), exhibited unprofessional behaviour towards staff, professional colleagues and patients.

“It is further alleged that his actions were inappropriate, not of the standard of a registered medical practitioner and not in the best interest of his patients.”

The projected end date of the hearing is May 14.

Dr Hart left the Bayside Family Practice, which served around 4,000 patients, in September 2008.

He later told the Evening Mail he felt unable to continue working there after the GMC requested his work was supervised while it carried out an investigation.
