In April 2010, the GMC ruled that Dr Robert Trossell, who operates a clinic in Rotterdam but is registered with the GMC and has consulting rooms in London, exploited a number of patients with multiple sclerosis. Dr Trossell was paid sums of between £6k and £11k by patients after he claimed exaggerated success rates for treatments based on anecdotal information and for treatments which had only been tested on animals. The GMC will hear submissions as to whether Dr Trossel’s fi tness to practise is impaired on 6 September 2010.
