In 2009, I received a letter from the GDC notifying me that it had received a complaint about my practice and I was being referred to an Investigating Committee.
In retrospect, I was probably quite naïve because I thought the matter would go no further as I had done nothing wrong. However, I’m so glad I contacted the DDU because my case eventually went to a gruelling 32-day panel hearing and I have my DDU legal team to thank for the fact that I was completely exonerated.
The DDU gave me fantastic support from the moment I contacted them, and I was particularly impressed by the hard work and diligence of the in-house solicitor who was totally meticulous in his preparation and completely committed to my cause.
Throughout the case, I felt I had the right people on my side and that the DDU would do what it took to protect my reputation. I couldn’t have asked for any more.
