A medical tribunal has heard how Pakistani Doctor Muhammad Ghani Imran was sacked from Bolton Hospital after making ‘sexually motivated’ phone calls to patients he had treated. You can image the type of thoughts racing through his perverted Muslim mind as he is inspecting a female patients vagina. Its more likely to be how he can get in there than it is sorting their medical condition out. No wonder that he was also accused of being incompetent and late 80% of the time with all those sexual thoughts on his mind.
Unfortunately this is another negative aspect of NHS cost cutting and hiring second rate doctors from Pakistan.
Gynaecologist sacked after making ‘sexually motivated’ phone calls to patients, hearing told
Muhammad Ghani Imran, a doctor at Royal Bolton Hospital, asked one 21-year-old patient what she was doing at the weekend and for her email address during the course of up to 11 calls and texts in 2011, the hearing into his fitness to practice heard.
A gynaecologist was sacked after making ‘sexually motivated’ phone calls to women patients after examining them, a tribunal was told.
Muhammad Ghani Imran, a gynaecology doctor at Royal Bolton Hospital, asked one 21-year-old patient what she was doing at the weekend and for her email address during the course of up to 11 calls and texts in 2011, the hearing into his fitness to practice heard.
The ‘highly irregular’ calls are part of a string of charges against Dr Imran – being put before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service – which could see him struck off.
The tribunal was also told how Dr Imran, who qualified as a doctor in Pakistan in 1986, would disappear from the obstetrics and gynaecology wards to visit the computer room for marathon internet browsing sessions and phone conversations.
Dr Imran – who now lives and works in Pakistan and did not attend the first day of the hearing – is also accused of failing to remove a contraceptive coil from a patient, and failing to examine a patient suffering from an infection, when told to do so by his bosses.
Robin Kitching, opening the case for the General Medical Council, told the court that Dr Imran – who worked for Royal Bolton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust between August 2010 and his sacking in April 2012 – was late for clinics up to 80 per cent of the time, keeping patients and other medics waiting.
Dr Imran ‘inappropriately contacted’ two women – referred to as patient A and patient B – between February and November 2011, Mr Kitching said, asking how they were after their appointments with him at the hospital.
He added: “The contact with the patients A and B contained nothing overtly sexual. He did not ask the women to meet with him for a date, but there was absolutely no clinical reason whatsoever for [the calls].”
The only inference that could be drawn was that the ‘highly irregular’, ‘inappropriate’ and ‘wholly unnecessary’ calls were sexually motived, Mr Kitching said – and only stopped because the women complained.
By the time of the calls to patient B, in November 2011, Dr Imran had already been investigated – and issued with a final written warning – over his lateness, internet use, failure to follow instructions following complaints from other medics and calls to patient A.
An investigation by the hospital’s IT department showed that in February and March 2011, Dr Imran spent over 30 hours on the internet – including one four-and-half hour session – when he should have been on the ward, visiting sites such as Auto Trader and a Pakistani news site.
Earlier Kathryn Whitehill, chairing, decided to proceed in Dr Imran’s absence after he failed to answer a string of emails from the GMC.
An email, read to the hearing, from Dr Imran to the GMC accused them of ‘victimising’ him.
