A Romford doctor accused of wiping a soiled nappy in a woman’s face is fighting to keep his licence.

On October 2, Dr Prabjhot Gill, from Romford, appeared before a medical tribunal in Manchester, which is assessing his fitness to practice in light of the allegations.

Dr Gill is alleged to have repeatedly abused a woman, reported locally as his ex-wife, on two separate days in March 2014.

On March 11, Dr Gill is accused of wiping a soiled nappy in the woman’s face, before verbally abusing her and refusing to let her out of her bedroom so she could wash.

Four days later, he is accusing of punching, slapping and verbally abusing her, and has already admitted pushing her into a radiator, spitting on, kicking, and throwing a slipper at her.

He has been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing and denies the accusations made on March 11.

The tribunal, which is scheduled to last 10 days, continues.
