Pre hearing information


The tribunal will inquire into the allegation that on 3 April 2019 Dr Bhargava carried out a sexually motivated examination of Patient A, without their consent, when it was not clinically indicated and failed to record it in Patient A’s medical records.

It is further alleged that on 4 May 2017, during a consultation with Patient B’s son, Dr Bhargava inappropriately discussed with Patient B their menstrual cycle and contraception when it was not clinically indicated and in a non-confidential setting.

Finally, it is alleged that on 18 June and 28 September 2018, during telephone conversations with two patients, Dr Bhargava failed to keep the conversation to the relevant symptoms and management and instigated the topic of contraception without prompting.


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.
