A doctor is set to appear before a medical practitioners tribunal this week facing a number of allegations of misconduct, including accessing contact details for a female patient in her medical records in order to send her messages of a sexual nature.

Dr Abdulkhaled Elmrghni Ahmed (GMC reference number 6152547) faces accusations that, in November 2014, he used the patient’s medical records to obtain her full name in order to send her messages via WhatsApp in pursuit of a sexual relationship. It is alleged that Dr Ahmed continued to send messages despite the patient no longer responding to these messages.

The tribunal will also inquire into an allegation that in February 2015, Dr Ahmed accessed a 14-year-old patient’s medical records in order to send her a Facebook friend request. It is also alleged that in April 2015, he failed to carry out an adequate assessment of this patient, failed to arrange for an x-ray, administered inadequate medication and failed to keep an adequate record of the consultation.

The incidents are alleged to have taken place in Bassetlaw in Nottinghamshire.

The hearing is set to begin on October 24th and is scheduled to continue until November 7th.
