The Litany of Psychiatrist Perversions Continues

Doctor 'groped his patients'
Amanda Crook
A PSYCHIATRIST has been accused of indecently touching two mentally ill patients in his care.

Dr Kayode Falodun is alleged to have kissed, cuddled and groped a 22-year-old woman with a history of sexual abuse and self-harming when he was employed at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport.

A General Medical Council hearing was also told he had inappropriately touched a 44-year-old woman with borderline personality disorder, who was sexually abused as a child and suffered suicidal feelings.

Both women had been sectioned under the mental health act and were in-patients on the wards where Falodun was a staff grade psychiatrist from October 2003 to June 2004.

The 49-year-old from Church Lane, Moston, admits giving one of the patients his mobile phone number and taking her to his office, where he had covered the windows with paper, for a consultation on February 16, 2004. She alleges while there he touched her inappropriately.

However he denies all these allegations, saying he has not acted inappropriately, unprofessionally or indecently. He also denies acting dishonestly by failing to mention on his CV or during his interview for the job that he had been dismissed from three previous jobs in Rochdale, Bro Morgannwg and Hertfordshire.

Jane Sullivan, counsel for the GMC, described how Falodun built up a rapport with patient A by trying to make her laugh during ward rounds, and how initially she considered him to be a "nice doctor".

The panel heard that Patient A rang Falodun's mobile because she was upset after an argument with her mother and he took her to the office he shared with a colleague, rather than speaking to her on the ward or on one of the nearby consultation rooms.

She says he made her a cup to tea and they chatted before he held her hands in his and rested them on his knee.

She alleges he sat her on his knee and moved her up and down saying: "if you were fat I would not be able to do that" in reference to the fact she had complained of feeling fat and unattractive.

He is said to have cuddled her, kissed her on the mouth and moved his hands all over her.

Ms Sullivan said: "At best he crossed the boundaries of what was appropriate in the doctor patient relationship and at worst his behaviour was indecent."

Patient B reported that Falodun touched her breasts.

The hearing was told that Falodun approached her in the hospital's family room after he had been banned from hospital premises.

He was excluded from duties on February 17, 2004, after Patient A complained about his behaviour to the acting ward sister.

The panel was not told why Falodun had been dismissed from two previous permanent jobs and one as a locum doctor.
