Osborne bro ‘begged his patient lover to keep quiet’
CHANCELLOR George Osborne’s psychiatrist brother begged his vulnerable patient mistress not to report him just days after she tried to take her own life when he ended the relationship – telling her it would “destroy” his family in public, a disciplinary panel has heard.
Dr Adam Osborne, 39 ( above), was married at the time of the “inappropriate” emotional and sexual relationship and embarked on the two-year affair with his patient, who he had been treating for depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue.
But after he ended the relationship in February last year, he began making threats towards the woman if she did not retract the complaint she’d made to the General Medical Council.
Dr Osborne was not present at hearing in Manchester where the tribunal was told he “blamed” his patient and saw himself as the “victim”.
Hearing continues. THE human nose can ‘remember’ around 50,000 different scents
