Dr 'abuse' inquiry gets OK; COURTS.

AN inquiry into claims of professional misconduct against a doctor can go ahead, the Supreme Court ruled yesterday.

The Medical Council can now inquire into the allegations against consultant surgeon Michael Shine.

The council had appealed a decision by the High Court in 2006 which allowed its fitness to practise committee to inquire into his treatment of nine former patients.

In 2003, Dr Shine was acquitted of a number of charges.

He had tried to prevent an inquiry into indecent assault allegations by several males aged 10 to 20 but now all complaints can be looked into.
