The surgeon was accused of improperly anaesthetising a patient in 2012 and then lying to cover it up.

After a lengthy hearing the surgeon was entirely exonerated, with the Tribunal being critical of the GMC and its experts, and finding that none of the allegations had been proven.

David Balcombe QC was instructed by Plexus Law for Dr Jeyapragash.
