Posted by on August 13, 2011 0 Comment

An Indian-origin doctor is facing charges before Britain’s regulator, the General Medical Council, of assaulting patients sexually while working as a locum anaesthetist at a clinic in Manchester.

Narendra Sharma abused and molested patients during abortions, according to co-workers who testified during the hearing.

The charge against Sharma was that while being employed as a locum at the Marie Stopes (International) Clinic in Manchester, Sharma acted toward three patients in a manner that was indecent and sexually motivated and thereby abused his professional position.

He allegedly used the hands of sedated patients to perform obscene acts on himself during abortion procedures. He is accused of moving a woman’s hand under the operating table during one of the procedures.

Dr. Sharma faced an allegation of misconduct after two medical workers gave statements against him. One staff member said she saw Sharma take a woman’s left hand and move it under the operating table during an abortion procedure.

Healthcare workers also made allegations against the doctor.

The hearing is going on, and Sharma’s record on the GMC register shows that he is suspended. Sharma gained his medical qualifications from Poona University in 1980. Hindu
