A PHYS­IO­THER­A­PIST who groped a fe­male pa­tient has been banned from the pro­fes­sion.

Leith Brown, 61, rubbed the side of the woman›s breasts and “the whole of her bot­tom” at Phys­i­olink clinic in Har­row, Lon­don, in Au­gust 2015.

The woman, Pa­tient A, came to Brown suf­fer­ing with se­vere pain in her neck, shoul­ders and up­per back.

Dur­ing her sec­ond visit New Zealan­der Brown touched the side of her breasts be­fore mov­ing on to her bot­tom.

Six months be­fore he groped Pa­tient A he was handed a cau­tion or­der by af­ter hav­ing an af­fair with a dif­fer­ent fe­male pa­tient while em­ployed at the Hospi­tal of St John and St El­iz­a­beth, a pri­vate hospi­tal which has pre­vi­ously treated Gwyneth Pal­trow, Kate Winslet, Jerry Hall and Kate Moss.

Brown se­duced the mar­ried pa­tient, romp­ing with her in her home as her hus­band slept in the same house.

A Health and Care Pro­fes­sion­als Coun­cil con­duct panel found he in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched Pa­tient A and his ac­tions to be sex­u­ally mo­ti­vated and he was struck off.
