His work in breast, abdominal and skin surgery was assessed along with other aspects of his work. At the end of the hearing, his performance was found not to be deficient nor was he issued with a warning.
Horlick was instructed by Julie Hesketh of Ryans Solicitors and the MDU. The doctor involved has commended both for handling his case with ‘a high degree of professionalism, knowledge, experience and skill’.
