Doctor’s registration cancelled due to ‘lack of expertise’ (via The Irish Times)

A doctor whose professional registration has been cancelled by the High Court may in time apply to have it restored once the Medical Council is satisfied by his training and competence.

President of the High Court, Ms Justice Mary Irvine, noted the cancellation of the registration of Dr Francis Chijioke Megwa was due to a “lack of expertise”.

Dr Megwa was a senior house officer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University Maternity Hospital Limerick (UMHL) four years ago. He worked there for five weeks until his employment was terminated in August 2018.

Ms Justice Irvine this week said it was not proposed that there would be any prohibition on the doctor’s right to apply for the restoration of his name on the register.
