GMC v Adler (2016)

Conducted the GMC case against Dr Adler before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.

The GP was charged with misconduct for allegedly writing medical reports for personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis in breach of his professional obligations. It was also alleged that he wrote two reports without having spoken to or examined the patient, and supported a fraudulent claim in the name of a patient made without the patient's knowledge or consent. In another case, Dr Adler was alleged to have written four different reports to try to maximise pay-outs from two  insurers in a multiple accident claim. The allegations were in great part admitted or proved. Misconduct and impairment were found and Dr Adler was suspended.
