Doctor admits treating unregistered patient at Grimsby's hospital and lying to their GP
A DOCTOR has admitted treating an unregistered patient at Grimsby's hospital, lying to their GP, and prescribing them the wrong dose of antibiotics.
Dr Mashud Souroyer also arranged for the creation of discharge paperwork for the patient – who had not actually been admitted to hospital – stating that certain tests had been carried out when they hadn't.

Arranged to meet the patient at the reception of the Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital, Grimsby.
Examined them in the Accident and Emergency Department of the hospital when they had not been registered at the hospital, in circumstances that were not in accordance with his departmental assignment, and unsupervised.
Issued the patient with a hospital prescription advice sheet in the same circumstances as above and also in contravention of the conditions associated with his provisional registration.
Specified on the prescription advice sheet the incorrect dosage of amoxicillin to be taken by the patient, and that a Doctor Walters was the consultant, when he knew he wasn't.
Failed to inform the patient that he was not registered as a patient at the hospital, or that he was not authorised to examine him when he was not supervised or assigned to the accident and emergency department, or when the patient had not been registered.
Spoke with the patient's GP on the phone and failed to mention that he had agreed to see him because he knew him in a personal capacity, told him he was working as a locum in the Medical Assessment Unit in the hospital and that he had been asked to issue the prescription by a senior member of staff – both of which were false.
Arranged for an electronic discharge summary to be created when he was aware that the patient had not been admitted to hospital, and that contained the following information that he knew was false – that Dr Walters was the admitting consultant, that a full blood count test and other tests had been carried out, and that the patient had been discharged from the hospital.
That some of his actions were misleading and dishonest.
The panel is being chaired by Dr Robin Knill-Jones, and the hearing is expected to last up to eight days.
