Tribunal rules on ex-Great Ormond Street cardiologist

A medical tribunal has found that an eminent former Great Ormond Street cardiologist's fitness to practise is impaired after he was found guilty of molesting young boys.

Philipp Bonhoeffer, who was dismissed from the hospital in May 2010, was adjudged to have inappropriately touched a boy aged 10 in France in 1997.

The doctor, who was also found to have behaved in an inappropriate manner towards youngsters in Kenya, faces being struck off the medical register after the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service found him guilty of inappropriate and sexually motivated conduct.
