Brain Surgeon on Trial for Sexually Assaulting Patients

A brain surgeon alleged to have sexually assaulted ten patients tried to cover his tracks by failing to complete medical records, a jury has heard.  Nafees Hamid, who was employed by the University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, is accused of performing intimate and medically unjustifiable examinations on ten women between the ages of 21 and 66 years old at the Queen Elizabeth and Priory Hospitals in Birmingham.  He has been charged with six counts of sexual assaults and seven counts of other offences of a serious sexual nature between 2009 and 2013.

The prosecution alleges that Hamid’s purpose in touching the women

was not medical but sexual…He ignored General Medical Council guidelines about intimate examinations and failed to record the findings in case records so as to cover his tracks.”

It is also alleged that Hamid made sexual remarks to the women.

After his arrest Hamid argued that he had acted legitimately and that the witnesses were conspiring together despite the fact none were known to each other.  The trial is expected to last approximately three weeks and involve 33 witnesses.
