A FORMER doctor in East Lancashire - who tried to work simultaneously at two north-west hospitals - has been accused of dishonesty once again.

Dr Noor Ahmed-Ebiarry, a consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician, was holding down positions at the former Queen’s Park Hospital in Blackburn and St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester at the same time when he was found out.

Not only was the doctor on a salary with two different trusts but he took paid study leave from both locations in September 2005, a fitness to practice hearing for the former General Medical Council (GMC) was told.

He was suspended for six months for the misdemeanour, in 2008, but was later allowed back to practice, with conditions on his registration.

In September 2009 the restrictions were lifted in full and it is understood he moved to work in Scotland later.

But now the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), which took over from the GMC in 2012, has revealed that the doctor is facing fresh allegations over his conduct.

The consultant, now known as Dr Noor El Din Abdelfattah Ahmed, has been accused of giving a false description of his 2008 misconduct hearing, in a letter to a doctor in the Edinburgh area in 2011.

“It is also alleged that Dr Ahmed made dishonest representations in an application form submitted to NHS Lothian in or around June 2011, and during a subsequent interview in July 2011,” added a MPTS spokesman.

The doctor, who had worked for East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (ELHT) since 1995, claimed he had been treated unfairly by his employers.

His original hearing was told that he had secured the St Mary’s job in April 2005 and started working at the hospital that September, without telling his management in East Lancashire.

The doctor took annual leave from ELHT to fulfill his St Mary’s obligations, in October, and when he was not allowed to take further holidays from the Blackburn trust, he took an unauthorised absence.

Panel chairman Dr G Lodge said: “You clearly had not thought through how you might manage these two jobs simultaneously or the adverse impact it could have on your patients.”
