A doctor who set up a cancer support charity has had restrictions on his work lifted while a complaint against him is investigated.

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

Dr Mannings was banned from prescribing drugs outside of the NHS by an Interim Orders Panel, but their decision was today revoked by a second panel.

Today’s judgement addressed to Dr Mannings conceded that “an interim order could have a serious impact on you and the patients in your care and the risk posed does not justify the consequences.”

More than 2,600 people signed a petition against the initial decision.

The GMC is continuing to look into the allegation that Dr Mannings gave chemotherapy to two patients without authorisation.

Star Throwers, set up in 2009, remains open and continues to offer holistic therapies and one-to-one support and advice.
