A gynaecologist breached conditions imposed by a tribunal after working at a Northamptonshire hospital without informing the General Medical Council (GMC).

Dr Olumide Yusuff was accused by a GMC panel of various breaches of professional standards while working at NHS hospitals in 2013, including simulating oral sex in front of a female doctor.

While the GMC was considering whether the charges were proved, it was decided in April 2014 Dr Yusuff had to inform the professional body if he worked for a hospital in the meantime.

However, he failed to do so after working at Kettering General Hospital as a temporary doctor in January 2015.

The allegation sheet said: “[Dr Yussuf] failed to notify your immediate line manager at KGH of conditions placed on your registration. [This was] admitted and found proved.”

Dr Yusuff worked as a locum in obstetrics and gynaecology for Betsi Cadwaladr NHS Health Board in Wales and East Cheshire Hospitals in 2013, as well as at KGH during January and February this year.

It is alleged that while at the Welsh trust, on July 19 2013, Dr Yusuff approached a housekeeping assistant and asked her what he should do with a patient who had hormonal problems.

When told by her that she was not qualified to answer, the GMC alleges Dr Yussuf said ‘well, you are a woman’ or words to that effect.

During a night shift between 25 and 26 July 2013, it is also alleged he failed to inform another doctor of a deterioration in the condition of a patient in a timely fashion after an operation.

He also allegedly attempted to amend the patient’s record and then destroy the page containing those notes.

Then, while in the doctor’s mess at East Cheshire Hospitals NHS Trust during a night shift between 8 and 9 August 2013, Dr Yussuf allegedly

made sexual comment towards a female doctor.

The allegations sheet accuses him of demonstrating to her how to perform fellatio by “holding your hand in the air in front of your genital area” and “making a back and forth movement with your body”.

The GMC said it believed the matters mean Dr Yussuf’s fitness to practise is impaired because of misconduct.

After a five-day hearing, a disciplinary panel has now adjourned the hearing until a later date.

A spokesman for KGH said: “Dr Yusuff worked at KGH for a short period of time as an agency locum doctor in January and February 2015 .

“Once the Trust was made aware of the GMC restrictions it undertook appropriate action.”
