Hope the patients are not lunatics!! Reporting a Doctor's touch as a sexual assault!! and as usual prejudiced judge jailed him.
If you take a doctors' touch as sexual assault then all the male Gynecologists should be sent to jail immediately! All the male oncologists who test women of breast cancer should suffer the same fate!
When a patient goes to a doc for back/neck problems...They don't expect to be asked about their sexual history & touched intimately. This type of behaviour wont be tolerated in the UK no matter what your medical qualifications.
Patients examined intimately are also not examined by a doctor alone...But with a nurse present. This doctor failed in his duty by not requesting a third party to be present for the patient.
Patients unknown to each other, made separate complaints...The Judge has a duty to jail this doctor & prevent him ever working in a hospital again, in the interest of public safety.
Wether any patient was a lunatic or vulnerable person or not...does not matter. The patients weren't under trial...the doctor was, in a trial that lasted 8 weeks and where he was found to be guilty of a number of charges from 2009 to 2013 against 10 patients who made complaints about his conduct. www.nhswatch.org.uk/tag/nafees-hamid/
