Proceeding in private
1. At the outset Ms Dyas, for the HCPC, applied for the whole of the review hearing to be in held in private on the grounds that this was necessary to protect and safeguard the privacy of the Registrant, as matters of her health would be raised. The Registrant supported the application.
2. The Panel heard and accepted the advice of the Legal Assessor. It had careful regard to the guidance set out in the HCPTS Practice Note on “Conducting Hearings in Private”.
3. The Panel was satisfied that consideration of matters concerning the health of the Registrant was integral to the proper review of the current Suspension Order. For this reason, it concluded that the entire hearing should be held in private in order to protect the private life of the Registrant.
The Registrar is directed to suspend the registration of Dr Elise Rivlin for a further period of 12 months on the expiry of the existing Order.
The Order imposed today will apply from 29 June 2019. This Order will be reviewed again before its expiry on 29 June 2020.
