Doctor's ordeal over claims he molested three female patients nearly two ...

A doctor has been cleared by a tribunal over claims he molested three female patients, three years after being found innocent in court.

Dr Ashok Singh was subjected to both criminal and disciplinary investigations during a four-year battle to clear his name.

The 53-year-old had faced a crown court trial by jury then a medical tribunal after he was accused of fondling four women during alleged incidents at a hospital psychiatric unit 19 years ago and then at a clinic where he was training to be a GP.

Dr Singh who lives in the village of Eaton in Norfolk qualified as a doctor in 1993 before moving to the UK in 1999.

One woman claimed Dr Singh intentionally slid the back of his hand across her left breast whilst he was examining her two year old son.

This is while a second patient said the married father of three touched her breast whilst checking her heart rate with a stethoscope during a chest examination.

A third woman known as Patient A, who was being treated over mental health issues alleged Dr Singh put his hand down her trousers and fondled her private parts whilst claiming he was checking to see if she had any hidden 'weapons' on her.

She also claimed the doctor grabbed her breast like he was 'holding an orange.'

In 2015 Dr Singh was then cleared unanimously of ten charges of sexual assault by a jury at Norwich Crown Court in November 2016.

Despite this he was ordered to face a further investigation by the General Medical Council over the same allegations involving three of the four patients.

Last week he was found not guilty of sexually motivated misconduct by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service which ruled the evidence of Patient A was 'not credible, plausible or reliable.'

It also dismissed claims he had deliberately touched the of the two other patients,saying it was either accidental or for done for clinical reasons. Dr Singh denied any wrongdoing.

In 1999 Singh took up a Senior House officer post in psychiatry at the Millbrook Mental Health Unit at Kings Mill Hospital in Nottinghamshire.

In 2012 he decided to retrain as a GP worked at Hellesdon GP Practice between February 2014 and January 2015.

Patient A claimed she was molested at the Millbrook Unit in 2000 after being admitted there following a tablets overdose. She further claimed the doctor had fondled her on two other occasions - even when she brought her boyfriend along.
