In July 2020, The Times newspaper ran a story reporting that the General Medical Council was taking TIF’s chief medical officer  to a “fitness to practice” tribunal, accusing him of "impairment by misconduct”. TIF says it takes advice from a number of doctors, and says its chief medical officer denies the allegations. Until this case is resolved, we have removed our ratings of TIF products
