‘Bum-spank’ doc ‘a liar’

Midweek Sport - - GADGET BOY -

A GP ac­cused of slap­ping a pa­tient’s bot­tom and com­ment­ing on her over­weight son’s ‘man boobs’ has been branded a “ma­nip­u­la­tive liar”.

Dr Amit Ban­er­jee ( right) is ac­cused of sex­u­ally mo­ti­vated be­hav­iour to­wards the woman on five oc­ca­sions be­tween 1995 and 2008.

The medic al­legedly smacked her bot­tom when she was be­ing weighed, told her to take her knick­ers off and con­ducted a breast ex­am­i­na­tion with­out record­ing notes and with no chap­er­one. The GP, who re­tired last year, is fac­ing a fit­ness to prac­tise hear­ing at the Med­i­cal Prac­ti­tion­ers Tri­bunal Ser­vice in Manch­ester, where he is ac­cused of mis­con­duct.

Pa­tient A, ear­lier told the panel that she had at­tended the surgery in 2008 with her teenage son who had con­cerns about his ‘man boobs’.

Af­ter ex­am­in­ing the lad’s chest, Pa­tient A claims Dr Ban­er­jee said, “He’s nearly got big­ger ones than you”.

Dr Ban­er­jee, from Wyn­yard, Tee­side, told the hear­ing he can­not re­mem­ber any of the con­sul­ta­tions, but the hear­ing was told: “It’s abun­dantly clear he is not telling the truth.”

Dr Ban­er­jee de­nies the al­le­ga­tions and the hear­ing con­tin­ues. Thanks to our friends at www.prexxy­box.com
