Mary O'Rourke QC represented Royal Family GP Dr Peter Wheeler

Mary O'Rourke QC represented Royal Family GP Dr Peter Wheeler.

Wheeler was found guilty of professional misconduct after the widow of Stefanos Vavalidis claimed her husband had been slowly poisoned after being prescribed a cancer drug for psoriasis. He admitted he should have ordered regular tests after prescribing anti-cancer medication for a skin condition despite warnings of harmful side-effects.

A disciplinary panel concluded that while his performance 'fell seriously below the standards expected' and amounted to misconduct, his fitness to practise medicine was not impaired.
