A CONSULTANT haematologist has been suspended from practice for three months for failing to test a cancer patient for hepatitis-B ahead of chemotherapy.

Such a test is considered standard procedure, but the omission by Dr Toh Keng Kiat, a former Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP), led to a flare-up of the patient's hepatitis-B.

The patient died in May 2005.
