NRI doctor faces action for false prescription

An NRI doctor faces action for falsely claiming a patient had erectile dysfunction and collecting the prescribed tablets himself.



London: An NRI doctor faces action for
falsely claiming a patient had erectile dysfunction and
collecting the prescribed tablets himself.

According to a disciplinary panel, 62-year-old Dr
Mohan Tharakan of Whitley Bay wrote in the patient`s medical
notes that he had erectile dysfunction even though the man had
seen the doctor for a cough.

According to a report in The Daily Telegraph, Dr
Tharakan faces being struck off by the General Medical Council
following a "fitness to practise" hearing after the incident
in October 2006.

Dr Tharakan, who has since retired, said he could not
have used the tablets himself because of heart problems.

He admitted collecting the prescription but claimed he
only took them to his home to check there was no risk from the
tablets.

A GMC panel refused to believe his explanation.

The GMC will now decide what action to take.
