Surgeon awarded payout in unfair dismissal case

Mon, 03 Oct 2016

A general surgeon has been awarded a £37,000 payout after winning an unfair dismissal case against the Department of Health and Social Care.

Ilhamy Saad Boughdady Iskander was employed as a consultant at Noble's Hospital for 14 years until he was dismissed last year following complaints to the General Medical Council.

An investigation by the GMC ruled the surgeon's conduct shouldn't prevent him from working, but that he should undergo some training.

A tribunal found that Dr Boughdady's dismissal wasn't fair, however he was awarded just 20% of the compensation sought because he needs to go on a course.

The Department has continued to pay the doctor's salary since his dismissal while the case was investigated, along with locum fees to cover his workload, costing hundreds of thousands of pounds in total.
