- A medical tribunal has heard that a leading facial surgeon “repeatedly punched” a patient in the face in an attempt to correct his facial fracture.
- Witnesses reportedly saw Professor Ninian Peckitt punch the man, but later noted that the face was “digitally manipulated” in his paperwork.
- The incident is said to have occurred at Ipswich Hospital in February 2012 when Professor Peckitt was called on to treat the patient who had suffered a fracture following an industrial accident.
- The General Medical Council has advised that the case against Professor Peckitt is not focused on the outcome, but rather the method of the surgery employed.
- If found guilty of the allegations, Professor Peckitt faces being struck off the medical register.

You may be interested to learn that this medically and dentally qualified doctor has been cleared by the General Dental Council in the UK.
The GDC has closed the case and revoked any orders and has been critical of the General Medical Council. This is historic and places the GMC in a very difficult situation,
The GMC has refused to respond the this ruling by the GDC which is responsible for the regulation of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery which is a Dental Specialty despite being advised of this 3 weeks ago.
Furthermore the GMC has concealed the GDC Ruling from the hearing which is ongoing.
One might expect the GMC to drop the case, but it appears that attempts are being made to launch aggressive case is being mounted against this surgeon.
This raises serious questions about GMC probity and strongly supports his allegation that this is a case of the NHS and GMC working together to try to silence a whistleblower.
