Gynaecologist, Banned For Asking Patient To Bring Sex Toys To His Surgery
Date Posted: 21/Jun/2018
A pervy gynaecologist who told a patient to bring sex toys to his surgery and wanted to give her porn has been struck off. Dr Iftekhar Ahmed, 51, even asked the woman if she wanted sex after performing an intimate examination on her.
The married dad-of-two also stared at the patient as she undressed at his surgery in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire - warning her not to tell anyone because he would 'be in trouble'. Ahmed was found guilty of a string of sexual misconduct offences, including touching the woman intimately without consent and asking if she felt like having sex while examining her. 
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) heard how the woman, in her 40s, went to the Princess Royal health clinic for advice about sexual health twice in August 2013 and January 2015.
She told how she had been left shaken and embarrassed Ahmed when quizzed her over her sex life, what sex toys she used and if he could look at them.
The woman said: 'He started behaving strangely when I told him I didn't have a boyfriend and he started asking about my sex life and if I was having sex with anyone. I said I am having sex with someone because I didn't want him to know I was on my own because I felt uncomfortable and worried. He went on to ask many sexual questions like what sexual positions do I do and which I like.' 
The woman continued: 'He asked if I like licking and he pulled his tongue out and wiggled it.'
She said: 'I did not answer but I felt dirty. He asked me the same question again and I told him again I didn't understand. He then said again did I feel like I wanted to have sex whilst he was doing the exam. I did not answer.'
The woman told how she saw Ahmed 'staring at me when I was putting my clothes back on'.
He would later access her medical records for her telephone number and ask her more inappropriate questions about her private life. He also asked if he could install pornography on her home computer.
The patient said in her statement: 'He said it was Dr Ahmed, did I remember what we said earlier and was it okay for him to come to my house to put the porn on my laptop.
'I said I wasn't at home and I could feel he was shocked. He paused and he said it was alright, he could come this evening. I said I didn't feel that it was alright for him to come round to install porn and I didn't want that.'
Ahmed, originally from Bangladesh, failed to attend the medical tribunal disciplinary hearing and is now thought to be practising in America.
He was banned from the medical register for life.
The MPTS, sitting in Manchester, said in its judgment: 'The Tribunal was concerned that Dr Ahmed abused his position of trust as a genito-urinary doctor: a role in which he would have routinely conducted intimate examinations on walk-in patients, some who may have been vulnerable.
'The tribunal found that his sexual misconduct would seriously undermine public trust in the profession.'
Sexual misconduct: What Dr Ahmed was found guilty of:
. In August 2013, asking the woman whether she had sex toys and to bring them to their next consultation so that he could look at them
. In January 2015, asked personal questions about the patient's sex life, if she liked 'licking' and what sex positions she preferred.
. Failed to get consent to perform an intimate examination and watched the her undress.
. Asked the patient more than once whether his examinations made her 'want to have sex'.
. Quizzed the woman about her porn habits and told her that he could install pornography on her laptop at her home.
. Told the patient not to tell anyone as he would 'be in trouble'.
. Accessed her medical records to obtain her personal phone number and rang her numerous times.
