Application to prevent publication of a video of a patient, P, in her treating hospital. The application was granted.
The court made an order for committal to prison after the Respondent was found guilty of impersonating the P and incurring cost on the P’s behalf that he was not authorised to do.
The Respondent, who did not attend the hearing, had been ordered not to contact the P or come within 100m of his house. This hearing was to determine whether he had breached those orders.
The court found that the Respondent had impersonated the P and had also incurred cost on the P’s behalf that he was not authorised to do. He was sentenced to 4 months in prison.
