Two things here

A former Champneys spa doctor has been struck off after he had a nine-year affair with a patient.

GP Simon Berrisford, 57, began seeing the woman after meeting her during a consultation.

The woman, named only as Patient A, was also given prescription drugs from Mr Berrisford until the couple split up in 2018.

Yes, shagging the patients is a bad idea.

But there’s an obvious thought. The complaint came 9 years later – after the split up. Which leads one to possibly suspect that it wasn’t the how they met but how they left which led to the complaint. Almost as if there was this technical matter which could be weaponised over the leaving, not the meeting.

But this:

‘‘The Tribunal acknowledges Dr Berrisford’s ongoing right to deny the allegation but found that his characterisation of the GMC’s proceedings as ‘persecutory nonsense’ exemplifies his hostile attitude towards his regulator.’’

How very dare you not take the posturings of bureaucrats seriously? A most serious crime that is.

  1. Any doctor who shags a patient is asking for it.

    She’s* almost certainly barmy, probably with some sort of authority figure/daddy kink.

    The sex might be great, but she’s going to completely lose her shit when it ends.

    *I don’t think I’ve ever read a story about a female GP shagging a male patient.

  2. *I don’t think I’ve ever read a story about a female GP shagging a male patient.

    Not because it doesn’t happen, I’m pretty sure it does, but more because guy’s don’t tend to go full victim mode making complaints to regulators and trying to destroy a professional life and reputation.

    That sort of vindictiveness is a female characteristic.

    Yep, I absolutely know it happens – as I said, there are two parts to this.

    1) Shagging someone
    2. The someone being fucking barmy (and, as you say, vindictive).

    Congreve knew what he was on about when he wrote the line about women scorned.

  4. Nine years is a long time. How can he possibly prove innocence when the accuser can move any alleged dates when things occurred forwards or backwards by days, months or even years?

  5. *I don’t think I’ve ever read a story about a female GP shagging a male patient.

    Worrabaht lady GPs and lady patients?

  6. “*I don’t think I’ve ever read a story about a female GP shagging a male patient”

    Not with my lady GP, she is intensely annoying.

    And actually quite a poor doctor.

    Mine is both competent and attractive; I’m amazed I’m not ill more often.
