High Court overturns GDC decision to erase dentist
The High Court has found that NHS regulations do not forbid ‘top-up’ fees, after the General Dental Council (GDC) struck off a dentist.
Lucy Jane Williams was erased from the register due to professional misconduct allegations including charging ‘top-up’ private fees in addition to NHS charges.
After confirming that ‘top-up’ fees are permitted by NHS regulations, the judge found Williams’ erasure to be ‘procedurally unfair’, and said the regulations are ‘not at all straightforward’.
