Deprived of consultations for two weeks. Dr. Michaël Rochoy, who officiates in Outreau (Pas-de-Calais), was banned for two weeks by the disciplinary chamber of the Council of the Order of Physicians of Hauts-de-France for "breaches of ethical obligations", reveals the specialized site Egora. Dr. Rochoy confirms to Le Parisien that he was informed of his suspension this morning by mail, with acknowledgment of receipt.
This general practitioner was accused of having consulted Emmanuel Macron's medical file twice, in the summer of 2021. He defended himself by explaining that he had wanted to alert on the breaches of protection of medical data, and that he had in no way disseminated the information found.
During his hearing on June 16, Dr. Rochoy pleaded good faith. He said that in the summer of 2021, in the middle of the vaccination campaign against Covid-19, he had received a patient without a carte vitale. He then discovered that he could check his vaccination status simply by having his name and date of birth. The doctor then tried to look for other names, including that of the president.
He will not appeal
He had noticed an inconsistency between the date of first injection that had been communicated and that which was on the platform. In September 2021, when the case is mediatized, he assures the Parisian to have acted "out of curiosity, to realize if it was possible", and explains having at the time warned the Elysée of the situation.
"I'm comfortable with what I did which was to look at the president's QR code when we all knew his vaccination status... I obviously accept the sanction without appeal: I do not want to drag it out for several months or years, he said, this Monday evening, to the Parisian. Concretely, I live it very well: I was not told of a serious illness, but just two weeks of imposed leave, there is worse. " Before ironizing on his sulphurous colleague Marseille.

"If we compare to Didier Raoult's reprimand, I should perhaps have advocated in the press ineffective and unnecessarily dangerous treatments, rather than checking the feasibility of accessing the pass of the President of the Republic, who had given his status six weeks earlier... " he says.
At that time, the QR Code of the head of state leaked on social networks. The Élysée then implicated "health professionals who, by malice or negligence, circulated this data". The Health Insurance had identified for its part about fifteen caregivers who consulted the vaccination sheet of Emmanuel Macron, including Dr. Rochoy.
