Zoe Johnson QC: Notable case

GMC v Mohan (2016)

Two QEB Hollis Whiteman barristers appeared on opposing sides in a Medical Practitioner Tribunal Council Fitness to Practise Hearing. Zoe Johnson QC defended Dr Anupama Ram Mohan in respect of allegations of misconduct relating to the delivery of twins in December 2012 when Dr Mohan was a specialist trainee registrar in obstetrics and gynaecology at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Dr Mohan also faced allegations of misconduct in respect of evidence she gave to the Coroner's Inquest which followed the death of one of the twins.

On 16th February 2016 the tribunal found that Dr Mohan’s fitness to practise as a doctor was not impaired. Dr Mohan, now a senior registrar in obstetrics and gynaecology has been practising for over 20 years. The charges that Dr Mohan had inappropriately managed the birth of twins and subsequently lied about the delivery to the Coroner were dismissed at the close of the case for the GMC. The doctor had previously admitted lapses in her communication skills during the stressful delivery of twin two. The tribunal found that although these amounted to misconduct they were not serious enough to affect her registration.
