GP is guilty of ‘se­ri­ous mis­con­duct’

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

In a rul­ing on the facts the tri­bunal found that the of­fer to clear his desk and have sex on it was “ad­mit­ted and proven” as was an­other of­fer to show her his in­ti­mate parts but the allegations that he kissed her and said “hav­ing lots of sex makes you healthy” was not.

In a sep­a­rate al­le­ga­tion, Ih­san also ad­mit­ted ask­ing an­other pa­tient about her sex life when the woman known as Pa­tient A asked him for an­tibi­otics for a chest in­fec­tion.

The tri­bunal found him guilty of se­ri­ous mis­con­duct in re­la­tion to Pa­tient B but his fit­ness to prac­tice was not im­paired in re­la­tion to Pa­tient A.

In its ad­ju­di­ca­tion the three­man panel said: “In the cir­cum­stances, the tri­bunal con­cluded that your con­duct con­sti­tuted a de­par­ture from the pro­fes­sional stan­dards.

“The tri­bunal has come to the con­clu­sion that your con­duct in en­gag­ing in a sex­u­alised con­ver­sa­tion with Pa­tient B, a vul­ner­a­ble pa­tient in a clin­i­cal set­ting, was highly in­ap­pro­pri­ate and breached the prin­ci­ples of Good Med­i­cal Prac­tice (GMP) and brought the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion into dis­re­pute.

“Your ac­tions would be re­garded as de­plorable by fel­low prac­ti­tion­ers.

“The tri­bunal also con­cluded that your ac­tions in dis­clos­ing Pa­tient B’s name to your wife was a clear breach of GMP. The tri­bunal there­fore con­cluded that the facts found proved amounted to mis­con­duct which is se­ri­ous.

“You have also not pro­vided any ev­i­dence at this stage to sat­isfy the tri­bunal that you will not re­peat your mis­con­duct. The tri­bunal de­cided that your ac­tions breached the prin­ci­ples of GMP.

“The tri­bunal de­ter­mined that your ac­tions amounted to mis­con­duct which was se­ri­ous and was a breach of the fun­da­men­tal tenets of the pro­fes­sion. In all the cir­cum­stances the tri­bunal con­cluded that your fit­ness to prac­tice is cur­rently im­paired. The tri­bunal has also de­ter­mined that a find­ing of im­pair­ment is both nec­es­sary and ap­pro­pri­ate in the pub­lic in­ter­est.”
