Hearing told of doctor's claims

A DOCTOR accused of exploiting multiple sclerosis patients told an undercover journalist he had a "good chance" in his battle against cancer if he used an alternative therapy, a disciplinary hearing was told yesterday.

Dutch-trained Dr Robert Trossel is alleged to have told investigative journalist Barney Calman that cancer had "totally disappeared" in several patients after aqua tilis therapy.

Asked by Mr Calman what he thought his chances were, Dr Trossel replied a "good chance" – but he warned that some people had not been cured, the General Medical Council heard.
