Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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”.
