A former vet has had his fifth attempt to be restored to the register dismissed by the RCVS disciplinary committee (DC).
Kent-based Warwick Seymour-Hamilton was originally removed from the register 23 years ago for failing to maintain equipment and facilities, showing a total disregard of basic hygiene and care for animals, thereby bringing the profession into disrepute.
Mr Seymour-Hamilton works as a herbalist and naturopath for humans and wished to be restored to the register so he could include animals in his research.
‘Far from persuaded’
DC chairman Ian Green said: “The committee is far from persuaded that the passage of 23 years has not had a negative impact on the applicant’s ability to practise safely and competently as a veterinary surgeon at this present time.”
The full findings and decision are available from the RCVS website.
