Tim Noakes found guilty of unprofessional conduct - HPCSA
Cape Town - Tim Noakes has been found guilty of unprofessional conduct by the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

"This is after he provided unconventional advice on breastfeeding babies on social media which was not in accordance with the norms and standards of his profession," the HPCSA announced in a media release on Friday afternoon.

Noakes testified and called witnesses in his defence in the case, and these witnesses were cross examined, the HPCSA said.

"The Pro Forma Complainant has now closed its case and there are no further witnesses to be called. The only outstanding issue is that of argument of the matter."

Proceedings have been adjourned until April 4 and 5, 2017.

The Pro Forma Complainant must file its heads of argument by February 1, and Noakes and his legal team will have until February 22 to file their heads of argument. The Pro Forma Complainant will then have until March 15 to file its reply to the heads of argument.

"The matter will then be argued before the Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) on April 4 and 5.

"The PCC will deliberate on the issue and come to a decision between 6 and 7 April."

A judgment on the matter will be issued on Friday, April 21, 2017 by the PCC.
