A report by NHS England into the actions of a doctor who filmed intimate examinations at his practice in Royal Wootton Basset has found that a senior partner at the surgery had 'ongoing concerns' about him.
Davinder Jeet Bains was sentenced to 12 years in prison in May after admitting 39 charges of sexual assault. But NHS England says there's a lot of work to be done to restore public faith in the profession. Laura Makin-Isherwood reports.
A family doctor jailed for filming himself sexually abusing female patients in Wiltshire has been struck off the medical register.
Davinder Jeet Bains used a secret camera hidden inside his watch to assault more than two dozen women at the surgery in Royal Wootton Bassett. The 46-year-old was jailed for 12 years in May.
Following a two-day hearing, the independent Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel said the only way to protect patients and maintain public confidence was to remove him from the General Medical Council's register.
Bains has 28 days to lodge an appeal against his removal from the register.
A 2-day medical tribunal starting today will decide whether a GP jailed for sexually assaulting and secretly filming his patients is fit to practise.
Davinder Bains, 45 and from Nythe in Swindon, was given a 12-year sentence in May 2013. The abuse took place at the Tinkers Lane Medical Practice in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire. Bains had fitted a tiny camera into his watch in order to film himself abusing female patients.
Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has released footage of a blaze at the historic Cross Keys Inn at Royal Wootton Bassett. It shows the roof of the building well alight. The pub had been closed for building work and was due to re-open next week.
An investigation is being held into a blaze at the Cross Keys Inn in Royal Wootton Bassett. It is the oldest pub in the town, and was a meeting point for families on repatriation days. The fire damaged the roof and much of the first floor. No-one was injured.
I would like to thank every person who has come forward with information following this incident. ... What I am now urging is that anyone who was in this area - especially on the A3102 heading towards Royal Wootton Bassett between 10.30pm and 11pm on Sunday evening, to contact us immediately. The smallest amount of information might prove vital. We believe this woman was struck by a vehicle which has then failed to stop at the scene. It is possible that the driver of this vehicle might not have realised they have hit anything or might have thought they had struck an animal.
– Inspector Steven Cox, Head of Roads Policing at Wiltshire Police
