Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
