GDC v Julie Elston and Kimberley Craig


Instructed by the GDC in a complex dispute that concerned significant irregularities in record keeping by a dentist in sole practice and a Registered Dental Care Professional she had employed. An NHS England review identified significant issues, including allegations that Ms Elston had signed blank prescription forms and had prescribed an antibiotic for herself. The fifteen day hearing raised challenging issues of evidence. All but one of the charges against Ms Elston were proved and she was suspended for six months with a review whilst Ms Craig was reprimanded.
