Interpol and National Crime Agency called in to investigate alleged child sex assaults by junior doctor

The National Crime Agency and Interpol are investigating a junior doctor, who worked at Russells Hall Hospital, over allegations of sexual assault of children and adults.

The Times reports that he saw more than 800 patients in A&E at Russells Hall, 350 of whom were under 18. The 35-year-old medic is also accused of sexual offences at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

The Times also claims that 40 new offences are being investigated by Staffordshire Police, and that the doctor is British, but trained at a medical school abroad before returning to work in the UK as a trainee doctor in 2017.

The alarm was first raised about the junior doctor in 2018, when the parents of a vulnerable patient expressed concerns about his examination of her.

Despite the doctor's suspension and internal and police investigations, he returned to work in 2019 due to police concluding there was not enough evidence.

After returning to work and completing his training in Stoke, he transferred back to Russells Hall, and in 2021 two complaints were allegedly made about his examination of two girls, aged seven and 15, while at Stoke.

According to The Times, he was excluded from the Dudley Trust in March 2021 and was interim suspended by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.

He was then arrested in December 2021 and released on bail, although it is alleged he rejects the allegations.

The hospitals have set up dedicated helplines for any patients or guardians who may have concerns. For Russells Hall, that number is 01384 322 311.
