Preliminary Matters

Health matters

1. The Panel considered whether to hold the hearing in private because the case is concerned with issues concerning the Registrant’s health. The Panel consulted the HCPTS’s Practice Note on “Conducting Hearings in Private”. The Panel decided that it was necessary to hold this hearing in private, so as to protect the Registrant’s private life.


The Panel directs that the proceedings be discontinued on the basis that the Registrar will remove the name of Mr James Sykes from the Register with immediate effect.


If the Registrant seeks to return to the HCPC Register at any time the application would be treated as if the registrant had been struck off as a result of that allegation
