A GP told a female patient she had a ‘beautiful body’ before slipping his hand between her legs during a ‘special massage’, a tribunal heard today.
Dr Mohammed Aquil Kamal regularly asked the woman to remove her clothes before rubbing her shoulder, back and buttocks during appointments at Church Lane Surgery, in Kingsbury, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard.
Ed Morgan, opening the case for the General Medical Council, said the doctor conducted a vaginal examination without a chaperone and his conduct was sexually motivated.
Known only as ‘Patient B’, the woman is one of four alleged victims whom Kamal is said to have performed ‘sexually motivated’ 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.
Indian-trained Kamal, who is currently banned from examining women or girls without a chaperone, denies the charges, claiming that the examinations either did not take place in the way alleged or at all.
Patient B, giving evidence through a Farsi interpreter, told the panel that she started visiting Kamal’s surgery shortly after arriving in the UK in 2000.

Still a patient at the practice, she said she often consulted the GP about a shoulder problem.
She said: “Every time I went to do a check-up regarding my shoulder I was asked to remove my clothes and then he would give me a massage.”
She added he once placed his hands between her legs before apologising when she challenged him.
The GMC say the doctor conducted intimate examination with three other patients dating back to 2006.
He accepts he had not provided a chaperone for several of his appointments, but claims it was not appropriate because the examinations were not intimate.
