Dr Mohammed Aquil Kamal, a senior partner at Church Lane Surgery, told her to lie down for a massage, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard.

He said other people might find it ‘odd’, but he had ‘special patients’ who he put more effort into, it is alleged.

Known only as ‘Patient C’, the woman is one of four alleged victims whom Kamal is said to have performed improper examinations on at the practice between 2006 and 2011.

He is facing a fitness to practise proceedings in Manchester where he could be struck off if the allegations are found proved.

Giving evidence Patient C told the panel she visited the GP with a lump in her breast in 2009.

She said: “He asked me to take off my top and undress to my waist.

“He went on to examine my breasts by palpating and checking if there was any lumps.

“He referred to a relaxation technique he had learned somewhere.”

Despite being ‘hesitant’, she told the hearing she agreed to the massage and lay on the examination couch with the top half of her body still exposed.

She said he started ‘stroking’ and ‘rubbing’ her shoulders, back and lower back for around five minutes but she ‘felt really uneasy and really uncomfortable’.

The GP, currently banned from examining women or girls without a chaperone, accepts he had not provided one for several of his appointments, but claims it was not appropriate in these cases because the examinations were not intimate.

He denies the charges, claiming that the examinations either did not take place in the way alleged or at all.

The hearing continues.
