Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that, on one or more occasion in October 2000, Dr Singh consulted with Patient A, a vulnerable patient, whilst she was a patient at the Kings Mill Hospital. It is alleged that, at these consultations, Dr Singh inappropriately touched Patient A in a way which was not clinically indicated. It is further alleged that Dr Singh failed to communicate with Patient A appropriately about the examination, failed to offer Patient A a chaperone and failed to make appropriate records.  


It is also alleged that in or around November and December 2000, Dr Singh telephoned Patient A at home and told her check her breasts and vagina for lumps.


It is further alleged that in May 2014, during a consultation Dr Singh intentionally slid his hand across Ms C’s left breast. It is also alleged that on 16 January 2015, Dr Singh inappropriately touched Patient D during a consultation.


It is alleged that Dr Singh’s actions were sexually motivated.


This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.


All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
