Doctor Is Guilty of Serious Professional Misconduct


A DOCTOR who ordered his receptionist to carry out an intimate examination of a woman patient has been reprimanded by the General Medical Council.

Dr Kailash Bihari also made receptionist Ruth Thomas test the blood of patients using a machine which checks glucose levels at his surgery in Nant-y-Moel, north of Bridgend, the GMC was told.

The council found the GP guilty of serious professional misconduct and issued him with a reprimand at a hearing on Monday evening.

Earlier, the council, sitting in Manchester, had heard how Dr Bihari, of Pentre, was a locum at the surgery in August and September last year when the incidents took place.

One of his patients had visited his surgery complaining of ``irritation and soreness down below'' and Dr Bihari ordered Mrs Thomas to check for ``any redness or soreness'', the GMC was told.

The incident left both women ``shocked and embarrassed'' and the patient began crying as Dr Bihari silently consulted a book.

Mrs Thomas was also shown how to use an Accucheck blood testing device and carried out the procedure on three patients, the GMC's professional conduct committee heard.
