Medical Council statement concerning Dr Prem Chhetri

Monday 14th January, 2008

Following an inquiry conducted by the Medical Council under the provisions of the Medical Practitioners Act 1978, the Council successfully applied to the High Court to have Dr. Prem Chhetri (Reg No. 58911) erased from the General Register of Medical Practitioners in December 2007.

It is not that the Medical Council "refuses to state" whether the doctor practised here. The Medical Council is obliged by law to publish the Registers it maintains and a doctor's registered address is part of the Register. However, once fully registered, a doctor is entitled to work anywhere in the Republic of Ireland and does not have to inform the Medical Council.
