Dr Abul Murshid squeezed the woman’s nipple ‘out of nowhere’ making her feel uncomfortable and afraid.

Dr Abul Murshid has been suspended for only only eight months.

A Muslim NHS doctor has been suspended after a patient complained he squeezed her nipple and asked for her phone number during an intimate medical examination.

A misconduct panel was told Dr Abul Murshid, 50, fondled the woman’s left breast without explanation or offering her a chaperone after she attended Guy’s Urgent Care Centre in Central London complaining of chest pains.

At the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, Murshid, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, was found guilty of various misconduct charges, but he was cleared of sexually motivated behaviour.

You have to ask yourself what are the other various misconduct charges, also squeezing a woman’s nipple isn’t sexually motivated?

In a statement, the female patient said: ‘Dr Murshid asked me to expose my chest area so that he could carry out an examination.

‘I remember quite clearly that he did not offer me a chaperone which I would have expected considering this was an examination of a private part of the body.

‘I was wearing a sports top at the time so I pulled this above my breasts to expose them so that Dr Murshid could examine my chest.’

She added: ‘He was poking around my chest and asking me to cough to try and localise the pain which seemed perfectly normal until out of nowhere he squeezed my nipple which was so uncomfortable.’

‘As I was complaining of chest pain I was expecting a regular chest or cardio examination… but instead Dr Murshid carried out a breast examination and it was more of a feeling up than an examination.

‘When he was asking me to cough he was poking all around and pressing down on my breasts with his hand then at the end Dr Murshid squeezed my left nipple.

‘He did not make any comments whilst he did this and did not explain before or after squeezing my nipple why this was being done or why it was necessary.’

Finding the doctor’s fitness to practise impaired MPTS chairman Nicholas Flanagan told the hearing: ‘The tribunal was concerned Dr Murshid did not consider the need to respect Patient A’s dignity and privacy throughout the examination, as her breasts were exposed and it considered that Dr Murshid failed to act appropriately.

The Tribunal therefore remains troubled with Dr Murshid’s understanding regarding intimate examinations, as well as the preparation and sensitivity required.

He was not sacked as you would expect, he was suspended from practise for only eight months.
