Migrant Doctor guilty of three counts of professional misconduct

A doctor who failed to reveal key information to the Medical Council has been found guilty of professional misconduct on three counts.

The inquiry heard that Dr Gregory Lowe failed to tell the Medical Council that he was the subject of a disciplinary process in Canada or that he had given an undertaking regarding his right to practise when applying to renew his registration in Ireland.

Dr Lowe, who was not at the disciplinary inquiry in Dublin, qualified as a doctor in Ireland in 1990. The inquiry heard on Wednesday that concerns were raised regarding his communication skills in 2011, while in Canada. He was asked to complete a programme in communications and, in November 2012, he gave an undertaking that he would complete it.

However, Dr Lowe, originally from Trinidad, failed to complete part of this programme, leading to his suspension.
