How should you deal with a frivolous complaint?


Dr KK Aggarwal and Ms Ira Gupta    25 May 2018

If it is a frivolous complaint, remember to exercise your rights. Section 10 (f), Chapter 2, of the Delhi Medical Council Act 1997 provides for the Council to take action against frivolous complaints.

“To receive complaints from public (including patients and their relatives) against misconduct or negligence by a medical practitioner, to proceed for inquest, take a decision on the merits of the case and to initiate disciplinary action or award compensation and similarly to take action against frivolous complaints.”

Section 10 (g) also talks about the duties and functions of the Council as under “To provide protection to its members in discharging professional duties.”
