CONDITIONS imposed on a GP pending the end of an investigation have been varied by a watchdog.
Sydney Farrow, who lives on Woodhouse Lane, Brighouse, will remain under the new conditions until February 10.
Announcing its decision, the General Medical Council's Interim Orders Panel said it had decided to vary the order for conditions made in August last year.
The latest set of curbs stipulate that, among other things, he must confine his medical practice to working as an NHS GP under the supervision of a named GP principal.
Also, in order to restrict his work to manageable proportions, he can only take on locum posts of not less than six months and not do any out-of-hours work.
Also, Dr Farrow must not do any medical assessments for the Benefits Agency or the Department of Work and Pensions, nor sit as a panel member for the Appeals Service.
He must tell the GMC of any formal disciplinary proceedings taken against him.
He must tell the GMC if he applies for work outside the UK and tell organisations that he is subject to the conditions.
No details of the circumstances leading to imposition of the conditions are given.
But a GMC spokesman said cases such as this were referred to the Interim Orders Panel when a doctor was facing allegations of such a nature that it may be necessary for the protection of members of the public or be in the public interest or in the doctor's interests.
