A Dublin GP has been found not guilty of professional misconduct at the first ever public inquiry into a doctor's fitness to practise. The Medical Council found that that Dr Ross Ardyll used inappropriate and insensitive language when treating a female patient at his surgery in the IFSC in September 2007. Dr Ardyll admitted to asking the patient 'if she had been next or near to a willy', in a bid to establish her sexual history. The council said the question was inappropriate, but did not amount to professional misconduct.
