A GP who works for a doctors’ practice with surgeries in both Stevenage and Knebworth has been suspended.
Angus James Brooke, a GP at the Knebworth and Marymead Medical Practice, has been suspended for 18 months after the General Medical Council launched an investigation into the family doctor.
Details of the investigation are not yet public, but the GMC has asked the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service to step in and issue an interim suspension while allegations about his conduct are resolved.
Dr Brooke has been suspended for the maximum 18 months.
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.
