Accident unit doctor to face sex case probe
A DOCTOR who worked at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire will next week face disciplinary allegations that he attempted to establish an improper relationship with a patient.
Dr Duleep Singh Kokri will appear before the General Medical Council (GMC), in Manchester, on Monday for a case scheduled to last at least a week.
It has emerged Dr Kokri worked as a locum at the University Hospital's accident unit for six months in 2010. That was before he was charged by the GMC.
It is understood he did not practice in North Staffordshire afterwards.

The GMC's Fitness to Practice panel will examine the allegation that "Dr Kokri failed to offer a patient a chaperone before examining them, attempted to establish an improper relationship with the patient, and that both actions were sexually motivated."
A University Hospital spokesman said: "Dr Kokri worked at the University Hospital between April and September 2010.
"As a doctor supplied by an agency, he was subject to a range of pre-employment checks. He was not facing General Medical Council charges when supplied by the agency.
"We cannot comment further."
