Doc pulled his pudding in surgery
A DOCTOR has admitted masturbating in front of a webcam in his consultation room.
Damian Smith, 37, recorded a computer video file called ‘Me In Surgery’ which showed him masturbating at the request of a woman.
He performed the sex act shortly after seeing patients in morning surgery at the Peel Medical Centre on the Isle of Man.
Elizabeth DudleyJones, for the General Medical Council (GMC), said police discovered the file on the hard drive of his personal laptop after practice bosses raised concerns about the incident on New Year’s Eve 2010.
She said that in the video Dr Smith is seen sitting at his surgery “...talking to a female on the webcam.
“He appeared to remove his trousers, continued to talk and then began to indulge in sexually explicit conversation, referring to his penis.
“He ejaculates and then Dr Smith closes down the webcam.
“It is the GMC’s case that his behaviour was indecent, inappropriate and was conduct that was likely to bring the medical profession into disrepute.”
At a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearing Dr Smith admitted committing an act of a sexually explicit nature, creating an electronic recording of it and transmitting it to a third party.
The hearing, in Manchester, continues.
