The case of a doctor who set up a cancer support charity but was banned from prescribing drugs outside of the NHS after a complaint was made against him, will be reviewed on Monday.

A General Medical Council (GMC) investigation was launched after an oncologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital made a complaint against Henry Mannings, who runs the Star Throwers charity in Wymondham.

Since then more than 2,600 people have signed a petition against the decision and the charity hopes that a second panel, due to hear the case at the GMC headquarters in Manchester on Monday, will reverse the restrictions.

An Interim Orders Panel late last year imposed conditions on Dr Mannings, who is NHS-registered, while the GMC looks into the allegation that he gave chemotherapy to two patients without authorisation.

Star Throwers remains open and continues to offer holistic therapies and one-to-one support and advice. However, Dr Mannings has been banned from prescribing drugs outside of the NHS, which has restricted his work at the cancer support centre in Melton Road, Wymondham.
