A Doctor at Craigavon Area Hospital has admitted to attending work whilst drunk on 04/09/19. Nine years prior he had referred himself to the GMC after a car crash that led to a drunk driving conviction. He avoided being suspended but was required to work under imposed conditions. At a review hearing last week, the MPTS panel imposed five work conditions, found that his fitness to practice remained impaired, and suspended his registration for 12 months. It was acknowledged that he had made frank admissions and demonstrated insight but working under the influence of alcohol was an act of serious misconduct.
