- Dr Kwame Somuah-Boateng had six-month fling with woman known as Patient A
- He was cleared of attempted rape by a jury at Croydon Crown Court in 2015
- Now faces action from medical tribunal after patient claims she was ‘groomed’
- Panel heard pair had sex in hospital and Dr told her it was ‘good’ for her condition
A senior doctor who had an affair with a patient he diagnosed with multiple sclerosis repeatedly told her having sex was good for her condition, a medical tribunal heard today thegearhungry.
Dr Kwame Somuah-Boateng, 43, told the woman that intercourse with him would stimulate the muscles in her legs and he had sex with her in his hospital sleeping quarters, saying: ‘Trust me I’m a doctor – it will help you to get your sensitivity back.’
The affair began in July 2012 after Patient A was admitted to the A&E department at Croydon University Hospital where Boateng comforted her after she was diagnosed with MS.
During their illicit romance, Somuah-Boateng took his mistress who is in her 30s to a christening and vowed to marry her an have a her son by her – even though he already had a wife and daughters in his native Ghana, it was claimed.
He claimed having sex would help her ‘regain the feelings in her honeypot’ and would ‘help her pelvic floor muscles because they were weak.’ He said it would help her ‘to feel normal – feel like a woman.’
The six-month fling ended when the woman – known as Patient A – discovered she might be pregnant only for him to warn her his wife would ‘kill’ the baby, it was alleged.
When she thought she had miscarried he tried to have sex with her again.
She discovered what Dr Somuah-Boateng had told her about sex and her condition was false when she went for a subsequent medical appointment for her MS, it was said.
