Doctors: Disqualification

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many doctors have been (a) struck off and (b) stopped from making prescriptions for prescribing controlled drugs; and if he will make a statement. (159441)

The Department does not collect this information centrally, and is not directly involved in the disciplining of individual doctors, or imposing conditions on their practice. Decisions about whether a doctor should be struck off the register, or have conditions imposed, are matters for the General Medical Council.
