Misconduct GP faces another wait
7:00am Friday 31st January 2014 in News
AN OXFORD GP faces another wait to find out if he will be struck off after a board of doctors ruled he examined women patients inappropriately.
Dr Yenugula Srinivas was accused of sexually motivated conduct towards female patients while working in the city between April 2008 and January 2009.
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service this week announced he has been found guilty of misconduct following a Manchester hearing in November and December.
He was expected to be told after this week’s ruling whether he would be struck off. But a separate hearing is now to be held in March to consider his case.
The suspended family doctor was found to have acted inappropriately with a number of female patients.
The board found that Dr Srinivas had asked to conduct breast examinations for non-clinical purposes and had done intimate examinations without consent.
He also failed to offer a chaperone to some women when conducting intimate examinations. It was also ruled that some of his behaviour was sexually motivated.
Dr Srinivas, then living in Church Road, Sandford-on-Thames, was cleared of sexually assaulting eight patients in October 2011 after he denied 11 charges at Oxford Crown Court.
