UK: Senior Gynaecologist Is Struck Off For Groping A Midwife's Bottom by katty : June 18, 2018, 09:33:17 AM
A senior gynaecologist who groped a midwife’s bottom as she delivered twins has been struck off. Khaled Ismail, 50, put his hand on the nurse as she waited for the second baby to arrive. She was one of four junior colleagues he targeted over a three-year period.
 
They were left embarrassed and fearful of reporting him because of his senior position, a tribunal heard.
 
The midwife told how she felt a ‘slow but gradual pressure’ on her left bottom cheek so she shifted her weight on to her right foot to move away from him only for the same thing to happen again.
 
Ismail then moved his right leg so his inner thigh was pushing up against the back of her thigh, she said.

The doctor, who was professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, denied touching the four junior colleagues in a sexually motivated manner.
 
But the hearing upheld the allegations, which happened between 2013 and 2015, and he was banned from the medical profession.
 
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester was told Ismail assaulted the midwife as she delivered twins – and that he had no need to even be in the room. She told the tribunal: ‘The way he did it was also very sly and made me question myself.’
 
Ismail, who qualified at Ain Shams University in Egypt, also ran his little finger up and down the thigh of a PhD student during a meeting to discuss her studies, and, almost three years later, groped her bottom as she assisted him in surgery.
 
The woman, known as Dr A, said she was left ‘shocked and angry’ after the first incident and called her sister in tears to ‘try and make sense of the situation’. She told the tribunal: ‘This whole experience has destroyed my life.’
 
The tribunal heard that Ismail, of Market Drayton, Shropshire, also slid his hand up and down another nurse’s thigh in a delivery suite and rubbed a woman’s leg during a meeting.
 
Ismail denied the incidents, arguing evidence had been ‘contaminated’ and that the women had discussed their allegations with each other.
 
There were also ‘rumours’ circulating in the Trust at a time when Ismail was excluded relating to his arrest in 2014 for an incident on a train.
 
The panel noted ‘extensive and impressive testimonials’ provided by his colleagues but found the allegations proven, highlighting the ‘opportunistic’ nature of the incidents.
