Medical Doctor disbarred from practice
GMI's Commercial Litigation and Admin Law department represented the Health Professions Council of SA in a bid to have a medical doctor disbarred from practising medicine in SA for working outside his scope of expertise. Dr Rasheed Mahfouz was registered to work only in the public service. However, the HPCSA had received complaints that he was practising as a locum at a private clinic, dispensing medicine without a licence, not keeping proper clinical records, and issuing fraudulent medical certificates. The HPCSA went to court for an interdict against Mahfouz, who was ordered to pay the costs.
