MPTS panel clears doctor of ‘financial dealings’ allegation

Dr Paul Miller has been cleared to practice by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) Fitness to Practice panel after unfounded allegations of 'improper financial dealings with a patient' were levelled against him.

Dr Paul Miller has been cleared to practice by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) Fitness to Practice panel after unfounded allegations of 'improper financial dealings with a patient' were levelled against him.

Dr Paul Miller - formerly of Londonderry - has been cleared of allegations he had improper financial dealings with a patient and failed to maintain professional boundaries whilst practising in Belfast.

The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service said the General Medical Council (GMC) was unable to present any evidence supporting the allegations so the MPTS panel found none of the allegations proved. The case was deemed concluded.

The chair of the MPTS panel that heard the case, Dr Neil Sykes, said: “The case having been opened, Ms Lewis offered no evidence on behalf of the GMC.

“In the absence of any evidence being adduced to support the allegation, the panel has announced that all of the facts are found not proved.”

Dr Sykes continued: “Given the panel’s finding that none of the facts alleged have been found proved it follows necessarily that the panel considers there is no evidence to support a finding of impairment of your fitness to practise.

“The interim order of Conditions currently imposed on your registration is hereby revoked. This case is concluded.”

Back in 2008 the former Londonderry man was the centre of a political storm when Iris Robinson told a local radio station: “I have a very lovely psychiatrist who works with me in my offices and his Christian background is that he tries to help homosexuals trying to turn away from what they are engaged in.” She was referring to Dr Miller.
