A Christian doctor who had been disciplined for offering to pray for patients has been vindicated following a four-year legal battle.

Dr Richard Scott, 62, from Margate, Kent, had been set to contest disciplinary measures and mandatory conditions imposed against him by NHS England.

The hearing was due to take place at Ashford Tribunal Hearing Centre, Kent, but the case was settled beforehand.

Lawyers for NHS England agreed that Dr Scott was free to pray with patients within General Medical Council guidance.
