A medical tribunal has found that eminent former Great Ormond Street cardiologist Philipp Bonhoeffer's fitness to practise was impaired after he was found guilty of molesting young boys.
The panel said that Bonhoeffer has a "deep seated behavioural problem" adding that the case represents one of the "most serious" forms of abuse.
The panel is of the view that Professor Bonhoeffer's case represents one of the most serious forms of abuse both of young boys and of his own privileged position as a member of the medical profession.
There can be no doubt that the serious misconduct found in this case establishes that Professor Bonhoeffer has in the past acted so as to put patients at risk, has damaged the reputation of the profession and has breached many fundamental tenets of the profession, including the requirement for integrity and trustworthiness.
