A GP accused of molesting three female patients at his surgery in Kingsbury has been cleared of sexual misconduct.
Dr Aquil Kamal, whose wife worked alongside him as the administrator at the Church Lane Surgery in Kingsbury Road, was accused of performing ‘sexually motivated’ examinations on three women between 2006 and 2011.
A fourth charge was dropped when the patient failed to give evidence.
The former senior partner denied the charges saying he treated his patients with ‘respect and dignity’.
He is currently free to practise in the UK, but is banned from examining female patients without a chaperone.

A fitness to practise panel found the doctor had not used consultations for sexual purposes.
But he performed a vaginal examination without a chaperone as well as massaged a student for ‘non-clinical purposes’.

A woman, known as Patient C, said he had asked her to undress to the waist before he examined her breasts for a lump and preformed a massage which she did not perceive as sexually motivated.
Another woman said Kamal appeared to be ‘enjoying himself’ during an internal examination in 2006.
The tribunal found he had performed the consultation without a chaperone, but said it would be unlikely a patient would be able to see the facial expressions of a doctor involved in such an examination.
The third complainant told of her ‘shock’ when Kamal slipped his hand between her legs while giving her a back rub after telling her she had a ‘beautiful body’.
But the panel found her evidence was not ‘credible or reliable’.
Kamal has not worked since he was suspended by the Primary Care Trust after the allegations arose in 2011.
He could still face sanctions if the panel finds any of the facts found proved amount to misconduct.
The hearing continues.
