A Kingsbury GP who was cleared of sexual misconduct has been found guilty of misconduct but will not be handed an official warning by health watchdogs.
Dr Mohammed Kamal, who had worked with his wife at Church Lane Surgery in Kingsbury Road, was told he could return to unrestricted practise this week, three years after he was suspended by the NHS.
The former senior partner was accused of carrying out ‘sexually motivated’ examinations between 2006 and 2011.
He was suspended by NHS England in 2011 and then stood trial at Harrow Crown Court where a jury cleared him of criminal charges relating to three patients.
Kamal had denied the allegations throughout the three-week Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearing in Manchester and maintained he had always treated his patients with ‘respect and dignity’.

Although the most serious charges were not proved, Kamal was found to have given a student, known as Patient C, a breast examination without a chaperone and massaged her for ‘non-clinical purposes’.
He was also found to have performed an ‘indefensible’ unchaperoned vaginal examination on a 30-year-old, referred to as Patient A, in 2006.

The fitness to practise panel found his actions amounted to misconduct and the GMC, represented by Ed Morgan, had asked it to impose an official warning on the doctor’s registration.
But panel chairman Gill Mullen told the doctor: “The panel is satisfied that the risk of repetition is unlikely and a warning would achieve no purpose as it would not serve as a deterrent in your case as in the panel’s view you have already learned a lesson.
“In the particular circumstances of this case and putting the panel’s findings into context your misconduct was not of a degree that justified a warning.”
