A black GP who was struck off for failing to spot cancer in a patient has admitted to falsely accusing the man's son of racial abuse in an attempt to save his career.
Robert Jenyo, 53, falsely claimed he was called a 'f***ing n****r' and told to 'give way for white doctors to work' after he was sued for negligence and investigated by the General Medical Council in 2015.
Jenyo, a Nigerian-born GP in Sale, Greater Manchester, had failed to spot signs of cancer in a 60-year-old man who complained of shoulder and mid-back pain in 2007.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The medic later claimed the unidentified man's son - known as Dr AB - subjected him to a torrent of racial abuse in a bid to deflect criticism of his mistakes.
Jenyo was struck off in 2015 after his bogus account was rejected, but in May he returned to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester to appeal for his medical licence.
In the latest hearing, he confessed using the false allegations against Dr AB as a 'front' in the hope he would 'get away with it', adding what he did was 'completely wrong'.
His appeal was thrown out after it emerged Dr AB, who has 'emphatically' denied using racist language during an alleged phone call, has not received an apology.
Jenyo, now a care support worker, said: 'I had been under pressure at work and was stressed and I was trying to cover up things.
'When the complaint came in, I did not want the details of this case to come out and suggest to patients, my colleagues and to the public I am a bad doctor.
'At the time, a high workload was making him tired and stressed but I now realise the impact my actions have had on Patient A and his family and I regret what happened.'
Jenyo, who was struck off in 2015, was previously a GP at Firsway Health Centre in Sale

It emerged the patient had complained to Jenyo of shoulder and mid-back pain and was referred for physiotherapy.
The man was later sent for an X-ray and blood tests after the physiotherapist noticed weight loss and pain which appeared 'not to be mechanical.'
The hearing was told Patient A's family were critical of Jenyo's care, claiming the man had complained of back pain since 2005 which had not been properly investigated.
They sued the GP for medical negligence in 2010 and two years later a settlement of £30,000 was agreed without any admission of liability.
It later emerged that Jenyo had
