To ask the Secretary of State for Health what redress there is. for patients who believe they have been mistreated as a witness in an NHS disciplinary inquiry into the conduct of a doctor against whom they have made a complaint. [116821]

Patients who believe they have been mistreated as a witness can complain to the appropriate level of authority, for example, the chair of the panel, the chair of the trust, or, if appropriate, the relevant professional body.
