GP carried out an internal examination however

Sexual assault        £ 3,300

I attended a consultation with a locum doctor at my GP surgery regarding an existing health problem.

The GP carried out an internal examination however I had concerns about the way in which this was done. I was a student nurse at the time and felt the way the examination was carried out was unusual. I was not asked if I wanted someone with me at the time.

Following the examination I thought I would be over-reacting if I queried the procedure that was done.

Around 18 months later I was discussing my GP surgery with some friends and was told that a locum doctor there was being investigated by the police for sexual assault. It was then that I gave the examination I had more thought.

Upon contacting my surgery and subsequently the police I found that the same doctor had been charged with a number of assaults.
