Questions raised by cancer case

Regarding the outcome of the fitness-to-practise case involving Dr Pat Lee and his patient Superintendent Martin Dorney, I would like to pose the following questions:
Were the positions to be reversed and the superintendent found guilty of professional misconduct, would he be subjected to just three months' suspension, retraining followed by two years supervision?
I think not. He would be called on to resign or be dismissed. I have never met or been in contact with the superintendent but wish him well in the difficult times ahead.
