George Osborne's Psychiatrist Brother Admits Sex With Vulnerable Patient Under His Care

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 10.02.16 17:57

The psychiatrist brother of Chancellor George Osborne is to go back before the General Medical Council (GMC) after he admitted having sex with a vulnerable patient who had been under his care, a disciplinary panel has heard.

Dr Adam Osborne, who is currently suspended by the GMC, admitted that he had engaged in an "inappropriate" emotional and sexual relationship with the woman, despite being her private psychiatrist.

The woman, referred to as Patient A, had been under Dr Osborne's care between February 2011 and late 2014 and had a history of mental ill health, the Press Association reported.


Dr Adam Osborne, the brother of Chancellor George Osborne, has admitted having sex with a vulnerable patient
It is not the first time the younger brother of the Chancellor has been in the spotlight for medical failings.

In 2010 he was suspended from practicing medicine for six months after writing fraudulent prescriptions for a girlfriend, a family member and a female escort whilst a psychiatry trainee at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester.

The GMC found that Dr Osborne had "behaved dishonestly" after attempting to obtain anti-psychotic medication for a cocaine-addicted woman he had been seeing while his partner was away.

As a result, the tribunal said the misconduct, which related to incidents between June 2006 and May 2008, impaired his fitness to practice.

Dr Osborne, who qualified as a doctor in 2004, did not attend the latest Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) hearing sitting in Manchester.

Instead, the tribunal will make a decision on the allegation that his fitness to practice is impaired by reason of misconduct in his absence when it is formally opened on Tuesday.

Dr Osborne admits that he knew, or ought reasonably to have known, that the woman was a vulnerable patient because of her history of mental ill health.

He further admits that between February 14 2015 and February 24 2015 he sent inappropriate emails to Patient A requesting that she withdraw her complaint to the GMC against him, and threatening her and her family. He also accused the woman of seducing him.

The hearing is due to last 10 days.

One screws a vulnerable patient and the other one screws all the other vulnerable people in the country.

Seems you get punished more for writing fraudulent prescriptions for a girlfriend than you do for disposing of a child's corpse, faking an abduction, perverting the course of justice and fraudulently taking millions of pounds for a pretendy search.

Get'emgoncalo,Dr Adam Osborne was showing "Compassion,Care & Comfort" for his patient who was in a vulnerable state,but he wasn't,he obviously knew what he was proliferating from in his supplying,(pimping) of medicines inappropriately to his patients, as confirmed by his past Medical records show?
What is further disturbing is the"inappropriate usage of E-mails,Threats to his patient(A) and members of her family" but no Police action taken against him,was he reported to the Police over his apparent Threats?

BBC couldn’t not report it, but have tried to hide it as best they could on their Home page:
 
‘Psychiatrist struck off over affair’
 
They had to name him in the actual report though:
 
Adam Osborne struck off for affair with vulnerable patient
 
2 hours ago 
From the section 
London
 
Psychiatrist Adam Osborne has been struck off the medical register after having a two-year affair with a vulnerable patient.
 
It follows a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service ruling that his fitness to practise had been impaired.
 
The 39-year-old, who is the brother of Chancellor George Osborne, had admitted an inappropriate relationship with a patient.
 
The tribunal ruled his behaviour was "profoundly unacceptable".
 
Dr Osborne, who was married at the time, had been treating the woman - Patient A - for depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue at his private clinic in London between 2011 and 2014.
 
She also had problems with substance abuse and self-harm.
 
Suicide attempt
 
He ended the affair by email in February last year but after Patient A reported him to the General Medical Council (GMC) he sent her a "number of inappropriate emails", the tone of which grew more threatening, the tribunal was told.
 
The four-day hearing in Manchester was told the mother of two took an overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol in an attempt to end her life two days after he broke off the relationship.
 
Dr Nigel Callaghan, the tribunal chairman, said Dr Osborne's behaviour "undermines the public's confidence in the medical profession".
 
After Patient A and another psychiatrist, Dr Neil Boast, reported him to the GMC, he emailed his former lover asking her to withdraw the complaint.
 
Representing the GMC, Bernadette Baxter said the emails were "highly manipulative" in preying on the woman's vulnerabilities.
 
Previously suspended
 
In a letter read out at the tribunal, which Dr Osborne did not attend, he apologised over the relationship and sending "inappropriate emails in a moment of panic".
 
In 2010, he was suspended from practising medicine for six months after writing fraudulent prescriptions for a girlfriend, a family member and an escort, while a trainee at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester.
 
The GMC found he had "behaved dishonestly" after attempting to obtain anti-psychotic medication for a cocaine addict he had been seeing while his partner was away.
 
At the latest hearing, Dr Callaghan said the 2010 case was an aggravating factor in the ruling to remove him from the register.
 
Dr Osborne has 28 days to appeal against the decision.
