We welcome the decision by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service that Dr Patel's name should be removed from the medical register. This means he is no longer able to practise as a doctor in the UK.
We asked for him to be removed from the register as the best way of protecting the public because his conduct fell far below the standards we expect of a doctor. We are therefore pleased by today's outcome.
