A doctor at Stevenage’s Lister Hospital has been suspended after the General Medical Council launched an investigation into him.

Details of the investigation into Vladimir Filipovich, who is an orthopaedic associate specialist at the hospital, are not yet public, but the GMC has asked the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service to issue an interim suspension while allegations about his conduct are resolved.

Reasons interim suspensions are imposed can include for public protection, in the public interest, or in the interests of the doctor.

Interim suspensions are not based on evidence or facts, but rather a basic risk assessment, and must be reviewed at least every six months.

A spokesman for the East and North Herts NHS Trust, which runs Lister, said the investigation follows the Trust’s referral of Dr Filipovich to the GMC earlier this year.

Investigation outcomes are published at www.mpts-uk.org
