DOC ‘TAPED HAVING SEX WITH PATIENT DURING A HOME VISIT’
A MARRIED GP was secretly taped saying “thank you” after allegedly receiving oral sex from a patient during a home visit.
The female patient claims she made several recordings on her mobile phone as she performed sex acts on Dr Simon Haydn Robinson, a disciplinary hearing was told.
The doctor, of the Cambrian Surgery in Oswestry, Shrops, is alleged to have had a 16-month affair until November last year.
He denies the claims and says the woman, known as Patient A, added the sounds of them doing intimate and sexual acts to the recordings.
Patient A says the relationship began in July 2009 when he kissed her during a routine appointment.
She says he asked her to return the next day – her birthday – and kissed her again.
The relationship is then said to have continued, with the couple meeting regularly and Patient A performing oral sex on the GP.
The disciplinary hearing
in Manchester had previously heard the meetings never included full intercourse as Dr Robinson said that would be “too far” for a married man.
Andrew Hockton, counsel for the defence, asked Patient A: “You wanted a closer relationship to this doctor than was the case” – which she denied.
Asked why she shopped near to where Dr Robinson lived with his wife Catherine, even though it was nine miles from her home, she replied: “I prefer that supermarket.”
Mr Hockton added: “The fact that you complained about this doctor is because you realised that he wasn’t going to enter into the kind of fantasy relationship that you wanted.”
Mr Hockton told the hearing that during one six month period the patient had 28 appointments with the doctor and the following year had 26 consultations.
The General Medical Council hearing continues.
