A disgraced north-east doctor, who paid herself thousands of pounds to which she was not entitled and wrote prescriptions for her family, will launch a new bid to have sanctions against her lifted next month.
Dr Victoria Waugh was found guilty of seven charges in 2012 relating to her time at the Elmbank medical practice and Foresterhill health centre in Aberdeen.
A Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) heard that, between March and November 2009, she received an extra £700 a month on top of her salary because she told her employers she was working 70% of a full-time week when she was only working 50%.
She claimed she did not open her payslips and did not check her bank account because her husband dealt with all the family finances.
She also wrote out 10 prescriptions for herself, her husband and her son.
However, she was cleared of carrying out private work in breach of her employment contract, publishing false information and being dishonest about experience and qualifications.
She was initially suspended for a year and the MPTS subsequently ruled her fitness to practice was still impaired in June 2013 and June 2015.
She did not return to work for NHS Grampian.
The current sanctions imposed against her include a ban on private practice and all her NHS work must be supervised by a consultant. She is also unable to practice above a junior level.
However, Dr Waugh will make a fresh attempt to get these lifted at an appearance with the MPTS on December 16.
