A family doctor allegedly  unzipped his trousers and offered to have sex with a woman patient on his desk.

Mohammad Ihsan, 35, had only just got married when he propositioned the unnamed woman, a medical tribunal heard.

The GP allegedly put his crotch in the face of the shocked woman and also kissed her on the lips, saying: "Having lots of sex makes you healthy".

The patient was said to have felt ‘glued to her chair' as Ihsan smiled at her, it is claimed. He then told her she had ‘lovely skin' and touched her cheek, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearing was told.

The patient eventually fled when he asked to look at her bottom and later reported him to the practice manager.

The alleged incident occurred in 2016 when the woman attended Dr Singh and Partners Health Centre in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, for a review about her contraception.  
Ihsan, from nearby Huddersfield, had been working as a locum at the surgery since 2015.  

Alan Taylor, lawyer for the General Medical Council, told the hearing in Manchester: ‘She had been to see the doctor previously because she was feeling down and depressed and he asked her about her previous relationship and she remembers crying throughout the consultation and thought his questioning was strange.   

‘On July 7 she had booked an appointment for a Pill review. He took her blood pressure and measured her weight and asked her how things were in her life since she last saw him. She said things were really good and that she felt better with herself and the doctor said to her, "I can tell you are in a good place, you look good".

He asked her why she wanted to be on the Pill and she told him she wanted it to regulate her periods, the hearing was told.   

Taylor said: ‘But following that, he moved his chair towards her and said, "I am horny, me". 

"He said he could clear his desk and they could have sex on it." The tribunal heard that when the patient reminded Ihsan he had patients waiting outside to see him, he replied: ‘I can lock the door if you want me to.' 

It is claimed he then said to her: "You do know how to be really healthy – having sex, lots of sex makes you healthy."

Taylor added: "He said he and his wife were no longer together and his wife was not giving him sex."

 He then unzipped his trousers and stood up putting his crotch near the woman's face, the hearing was told. When she jumped up to leave, it is claimed he said she could meet him in a bar and asked for her phone number. 

Taylor said the patient later received a Facebook message from the doctor's wife who said she and Ihsan had just got married and finding out about his behaviour had "absolutely killed" her.

In a separate allegation, Ihsan is also accused of asking explicit questions about another female patient's sex life. Ihsan admits 11 misconduct charges but denies 21 others. The hearing continues.
