Icon member issued formal public reprimand

The Conduct Committee of Icon was convened on 20th September 2018 to hear an allegation that Icon member Dr Evelyne Godfrey had made remarks in email correspondence that could amount to a contravention of clause 4.19 of the Code of Conduct.

Having reviewed the decision of the Investigation Committee and having considered all the documentary and other evidence before it, the Conduct Committee found proved that Dr Godfrey had used language that was deplorable and unprofessional in email correspondence and had thereby contravened clause 4.19 of the Code of Conduct.

The Committee further determined that it was necessary to impose restrictive measures in the case and recommended to Icon that a reprimand is imposed.  The Committee further stipulated that the reprimand be made public, due to the wide publication of the remarks, in order to maintain standards in the profession.
